Better Vocab = Free Rice

My sister-in-law sent me an e-mail recently that led me to this great sister site of poverty.com. This new site, Freerice.com, is set up like an interactive game. In the game, for each vocabulary word you get right, 10 grains of rice will be donated to hungry people. I played the game for less than 5 minutes and had over 500 grains of rice donated. Here is the mission statement for the site:

FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com.

FreeRice has two goals:

1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site. Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself. Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.
