Feed the Hungry While Learning Vocabulary

5 11 2007

Proving once again that you don’t have to be me to have a good idea –

FreeRice.com is a great little vocab trivia game.  It gives you a word and four possible one word definitions.  You choose the right definition and they donate 10 grains of rice to help stop hunger.  See what level you can get to, donate some rice.  Sure, 10 grains of rice is a paltry amount, but it adds up.

The rice is distributed by the United Nations’ World Food Program, and is paid for by the companies you see advertised on the bottom of the vocab screen.

As of right now, they’ve donated a total of 729,030,460 grains of rice.
