Play a game and help the world

FreeRice is a new game that will donate 10 grains of rice for every vocab question you get right.

For each word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program with the help of their sponsors, such as iTunes, Fujitsu, etc.

So, you are doing two good things for the world. The first, you are helping third-world countries struggling with poverty, and secondly you are helping the world in general because we wont have to suffer from intolerable language problems! :P.

So far I have donated 800 (80 questions) grains of rice, but I haven’t stopped playing yet! A total of 1,897,053,670 grains of rice has been donated as of November 14, 2007.
