FREE RICE

THIS IS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT!

I kid you not, when I saw the site FREERICE.COM I absolutely could not contain the excitement in my heart for the difference this is making in the world.

You just play this vocabulary game and for each word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice through the United Nations to feed hungry people. TRY IT FOR YOURSELF!

Free Rice began last month and 1,519,627,180 grains of rice have been donated already. Click here to see the TOTALS

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.

"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."
