FreeRice.com donate to charity free!
i just found out about this today. just go to freerice.com and answer the vocabulary questions. for each word you get right, you donate 10 grains of rice at no cost to you at all. The rice is paid for by the advertisers at the bottom of the screen and is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

Have fun!

I have donated over 400 grains. Do you know how many grains can feed one person? Just wondering.

It's such an easy way to help with world hunger! A couple weekends ago my youth group and I went on a field trip type thing to learn about world hunger and homelessness. It was a great learning experience and we are going to do some charity work with a local food pantry. After learning about hunger in the world has really made me realize that these people need help. Knowing that I can make a difference even just sitting at my computer is great.

Free Rice
This site is truly addictive, like we need new addictions. But you're helping others while learning and entertaining yourself.
