Frugal Hacks, a newsletter I read frequently, reminded me of the Free Rice website. FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Program. Our partner is the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University.
FreeRice has two goals:
• Provide education to everyone for free.
• Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
As you play a word game, and increase your vocabulary, you are giving grains of rice for each correct answer. This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on the site. You can even set it to keep track of all of the rice you give by choosing definitions for the words given. How wonderful to learn and provide rice for hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person will be eating rice that you helped provide. Visit FreeRice.com.
What a fun and frugal way to help others! Please pass this site on to your friends.
