Help Give Free Rice

5 Sep

Do good for others and do good for yourself by checking out FreeRice.com and playing an educational game.  I should warn you that it can be addicting.  It’s so addicting that I donated 2290 grains of rice by playing a vocabulary game.  Other game subjects include math, chemistry, geography, and even global languages.  Unfortunately, the 2290 grains I accumulated isn’t even enough to meet the daily calorie requirements, since there are only 48 grains of rice in a gram and DCR calls for about 400 grams, which means I should keep playing (and that more people should play too).  It’s a good thing the game also works as a learning tool.

FreeRice.com was founded in 2007 by John Breen, who then donated the site to the UN World Food Programme (UNWFP) in 2009.  UNWFP works around the globe and Freerice has distributed rice to many nations where rice is a staple part of the diet.  WFP gives an average of 400 grams of rice per person, per day which is meant for two meals that include other food items to meet the minimum of 2,100 Calories per day.
