Free Rice

I've seen this link posted on a few blogs recently and had a bit of fun playing. It's a bit of a word game where you're given a word and four options of what it means. For each correct answer, the advertisers at the bottom of the page donate 10 grains of rice that the United Nations will distribute to people going hungry. It may not seem like much but it makes a difference.

You may be asking:
If FreeRice has the rice to give, why not give it all away right now?
FreeRice is not sitting on a pile of rice―you are earning it 10 grains at a time. Here is how it works. When you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.

So check out FreeRice and play the game.
