Freerice.com

I'm unsure if many people know about it.... but I just wanted to share a website I personally love,
http://freerice.com/

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Programme.

FreeRice has two goals:
  • Provide education to everyone for free.
  • Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
I recommend checking it out- all you need to do is answer synonyms questions. For every correct answer- 10 grains of rice is donated at a third world country. You'll be amazed how fast you get bowls upon bowls of rice!

  1. Hm, I wonder how they actually get money through people answering questions...

    Who's sponsoring this? It sounds a bit too true to be good.

  2. I'm assuming they spend the money they received from their advertisers?

    I've been going every once in awhile since I was in high school. =)
