FreeRice.com

Need something new to do on the Internet besides refreshing celebrity gossip blogs and snooping on Facebook?  Visit FreeRice.com!

This is a fun way to increase your vocabulary but more importantly, for every word you get right, twenty grains of rice is donated through the UN World Hunger Program to help feed the hungry.  The site was launched on October 7, 2007 and 38 BILLION grains of rice have been donated since.  The rice is bought with money from sponsors when you visit the site so play often and tell your amigos!
Feed your mind and hungry people! I just learned that phlebotomy means bloodletting AND I donated 500 grains of rice.  I love it when the little bowl fills up.

I get so happy when I find things like this on the web. :)
