Expand Your Vocabulary AND Feed the World

At the same time!

I had no idea this was possible until I saw a post about it over at The Pioneer Woman.

The Pioneer Woman is a site I stumbled upon years ago. You all have probably heard of it and maybe are even fans. I like it and I don't like it. I like a lot of the content (like her photo-heavy recipes) and the info she provides regarding homeschooling interests me. BUT, her self-deprecating, cutesy style gets old pretty quick.

Nevertheless, I continue to visit every now and then and today I stumbled upon a post about the site called Free Rice.

It's totally cool, especially if you're into vocabulary (and who isn't!?). You simply answer vocabulary questions and for each correct answer, Free Rice will donate 10 grains of rice in an effort to help end world hunger. It's a non-profit organization run by the United Nations World Food Program.

And if, for some strange reason, you are not into vocabulary, you can click on the "Change Subjects" at the top right of the screen and pick a different subject to be quizzed in, like math, art history, chemistry, geography, and foreign languages.

Neat, huh? And totally addicting.

10 grains of rice? I wonder whose job it is to count out each grain of rice? I do not think I would like that job, at all.

that is a neat site. I'd never heard of it. within minutes I had 1500 grains of rice, cool. and it's fun. still wouldn't want to be the one counting out the grains of rice.

I know! I'm obsessed with the Art History category.
