Feed the hungry

Hey Everyone,

     I heard about this website on the Nightly News a few weeks ago. I forgot about it, but I don’t know why. It was such a great idea. I can’t believe no one has thought of this before. The website is http://www.freerice.com.

     The idea of the site is to expand your vocabulary while feeding the hungry. You answer trivia questions, and for every question you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice to hungry people around the world. It is actually really fun. They give you a word, and four possible definitions. If you choose the right one, You have donated rice to a hungry person. If you play for even just 15 minutes you can donate a lot of rice. Now I know what you’re thinking. This is a scam right? WRONG! It is very real. Now your thinking, OK so how is this possible. Right under each question is an advertisement. The companies that advertise on the site pay for the rice. Freerice is non-profit so all the advertising money is spent on rice. 

      It’s not always easy to be charitable, but this is the best way I’ve ever heard of. From here on out I will be playing this game for a few minutes everyday. I hope you will too. Catch you later.

Gotta Go,

Ben Willis
