Learn New Vocabulary and Give Rice to the Hungry

Today I came across a site that I thought was pretty cool - www.freerice.com – basically it’s a vocabulary game that you can play to improve your vocabulary and knowledge of the English language – they give you an English word and four options as to what it means and you pick which definition is right. The cool part though, is that for every word that you get right the site donates 20 grains of rice to starving people around the world!

They do this in partnership with the United Nations World Food Program (WFP) who distributes the rice. The money for the rice comes from advertisements on the site which are all done very tastefully. I thought it was a really cool and fun way to learn new vocab and help people in need at no cost to you. I encourage you to check it out. Enjoy!

Rejoicing in the journey -
