Every correct word = 20 grains of rice as donation
While blog hopping, I saw this website where you could increase/enhance your vocabulary knowledge and at the same time, be able to help our less fortunate brothers and sisters to have food on their table.
FreeRice has two goals:
- Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
- Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.
FreeRice began on 7 October 2007. The amount donated for each correct answer was increased from 10 grains of rice to 20 grains on 28 November 2007.
So far, FreeRice has donated a total of 5,306,133,170 grains of rice!!!
And they have donated 12% to the Philippines.
According to the United Nations World Food Programme there are 17 million Filipinos who are undernourished here in Philippines (22% of the total population).
So dear readers, during your free time, I hope you can visit www.freerice.com. Lets help fight hunger!
You can change the settings where you can opt to remember your vocabulary level and donation total on your computer.
I hope we can double the current figure.. just in time for the holidays…
Also, feel free to pass this info around..
