Free Rice

I read about this cool website in one of my trashy magazines and then read about it again on

I decided to check it out and it's so cool. For every vocabulary word that you get right, 20 grains of rice are donated through the UN World Food Program. It's to help end world hunger.

I'm not a charitable person. What I mean by that is that I don't have a lot of money to donate to charities. I try to donate in other ways. I give away toys, clothes, a nearby church that resells the items to raise money. I donate gently used towels, blankets, new food, new toys (from the dollar store) to animal shelters and I try to give money at Christmas to the Salvation Army. If I can find a way to help by doing nothing more than playing on a website at something I'm good at (that was my favorite thing in school....vocabulary), then I'm more than happy to play all day long. Well, not all day long since I do have to do some work.

Anyway, if you're a vocab geek like me or just want to try to help this program, check it out.

P.S. As of this morning, I've donated 6000 grains of rice. Yay me!
