Today I’ve donated over 1100 grains of rice to the UN World Food Programme – I’m going to do this every day for a week.
I think freerice.com is great and I’d encourage everyone to try it. What could be better than getting smarter and giving at the same time, I stumbled across this website once before and rediscovered it today, so I thought I’d share. Basically you answer questions and improve your knowledge, for every correct answer 10 grains of rice are donated to the UN World Food Programme. Pretty straightforward…
The explanation below is taken directly from the website:
Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports 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.
This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.
Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide.
