Play with words and do some good in the world

“What if just knowing what a word meant could help feed hungry people around the world? Well, at FreeRice it does . . . the totals have grown exponentially.” (The Washington Post).

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Programme.
FreeRice has two goals:
– Provide education to everyone for free.
– Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

English, German, Spanish, Italian and French are available, as well as some general knowledge subjects.

The site provides this great short video to introduce the site to new players: “Why is that important? Because the more people who play, the more rice we raise and the more people we can help. So far, we have raised enough to feed almost 5 million people.
The power of FreeRice lies in everyone doing our small part. So please share this video with friends and family, and let’s rice up against hunger!
