Free Rice: Have Fun, and Feed Hungry People

Free Rice

Do you remember spending hours at a time playing Tetris? How it was kind of relaxing and slightly stressful at the same time?  And when you went to sleep at night, your mind was still fitting those little blocks into place? Well, I have found my adult equivalent and it’s even better! It’s www.freerice.com. It allows me to help better the world, just 10 grains of rice at a time, and also enrich my vocabulary. The Tetris part is that I can’t stop (which ultimately is a good thing) and when I do finally stumble off to bed, there are all sorts of obscure words floating around in my head (which I suppose is also a good thing).

Here’s a little more info:

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program with partner, the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.

FreeRice has two goals:

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

This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors whose names you see on the banners at the bottom of your screen. When you enter a correct answer, they pay for the rice that gets donated.

FreeRice does not make any money from this. It is run entirely for free and at no profit. All money (100%) raised by the site goes to the UN World Food Program to help feed the hungry. Sponsors make all payments to the UN World Food Program directly.

Though 10 grains of rice may seem like a small amount, it is important to remember that while you are playing, so are thousands of other people at the same time. It is everyone together that makes the difference. Thanks to you, FreeRice has generated enough rice to feed millions of people since it started in October 2007.

Have fun playing!
