freerice.com

I happened to visit this site through ivolunteer.org.in. The concept involved in this really excellent and good job. It is very simple and neat. Click of a button you can save millions in the world. ok ok no more suspense!!! let me tell you about this website.

FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site
FreeRice has two goals:


~ Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
~ Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by 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 vocabulary 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.

To summerize, during one's free time can visit to this site and play with the words. This way one can increase their vocabulary by giving right answer and there by donating 20 grains of the rice to the United Nations World Food Program. hmmm isnt it intersting ??
To know more about this visit the site and you will get answers to your most of the querys like who pays for the donated rice, where the donated rice goes and how much rice grains collected per day etc etc...
I have added this site in my favourites and play when ever i get bored working or when i feel like taking a break!!! At the end of the day i am happy becoz my time was spent for a good deed and somewhere in the world, a person is eating the rice that i helped provide.
