Here is a really cool word game called Free RiceÂ (better than flash cards) that for every time you guess the answer correctly 20 grains of rice are donated toÂ help feed and end world hunger. Apparently, the rice is paid for by the advertisers at the bottom of the vocabulary screen.
The program began October 7, 2007 and already it has donated over 4 billion grains of rice to end world hunger. The website does not make any profit.
Yeah, I was skeptical to but I looked it up at snopes.com — the ultimate in busting urban myths and they (as always) provide background on the how and why this is happening. Check it out.
