The Rice Game

How’s your vocabulary? Our favorite person in North Carolina and I both recently discovered a beautifully designed site called Free Rice that combines an addictive word game with donations to the United Nations World Food Program (UNWFP).

I love this one. The
Free Rice home page lists a word and four possible definitions. Choose the correct definition, and the site’s sponsors donate 20 grains of rice to the UNWFP. One can play all day — I’m not kidding about the addictive element! How much impact does 20 grains of rice/word really have? Look at the site totals: more than 372 million grains of rice yesterday — and counting.

Today’s mitzvah: Test your vocabulary (and help out a good cause) at the
Free Rice web site.
