Calling all philanthropic wordsmiths! Channel your inner Merriam-Webster and fill rice bowls for the hungry. FreeRice.com, sister site of Poverty.com, and in participation with the United Nation's World Food Programme, has developed a fun, educational vocabulary game that helps combat global hunger.
How to play: Remember those multiple choice vocabulary tests back in grade school? Only this time it's fun! When you choose the correct definition you move to the next level and get a harder word. And, it does get harder. Get it wrong, and you get an easier word.
What you win: For each word you get right, FreeRice will donate 20 grains of rice to the World Food Programme (WFP). But wait, there's more! You also win increased intelligence, the admiration of your friends and the ability to interpolate big words into your tête-à-tête whilst committing sacerdotal deeds.
Just to let you know:
- FreeRice is completely non-profit
- The rice is paid for by advertisers on their site
- The WFP is not only helping to feed the hungry in over 75 nations, but teaching them how to be self-reliant in order to escape hunger for good
- You can download a banner and link to FreeRice.com from your website
