Free Rice

I’m sure you’ve seen those web sites where if you make a click you can help contribute some small amount of money towards mammograms, to fight hunger, or what-have-you. It’s just a click, no brain power required, and you move on.

Well today I heard about this site, which combines the easy clicking with a vocabulary test! For each word you get right, the site will donate 20 grains of rice through the United Nations to help end world hunger. I honestly don’t know anything about how this actually works, but I have to say, the test is a tad addictive! I had to make myself stop, because I was at work!

Here’s a hint too – keep another browser open to double check some of the more unfamiliar words – hey, it’s not cheating if it’s for charity!!
