So why not play and feed the hungry at the same time? Sounds far-fetched?

At http://www.freerice.com, for every correct word that you get at their vocabulary game, you are donating 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. The group and other organizations distribute the rice in 75 countries all over the world.

A bowl of rice may mean nothing to you but it can be a matter of life and death to the person who gets it.

“About 25,000 people die each day from hunger or hunger-related causes, most of them children. To a mother or father watching a loved child die in their arms from hunger, the rice you donate is more precious than anything in the world.”

Please play.

It’s a lot of fun, really.
