Play and Feed a Hungry Person

What if you can play, improve your vocabulary and feed a hungry person at the same time? What crossed my mind was 'why not?!'

At the FreeRice, you can play a vocabulary games. For each word you get right, FreeRice will donate 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. And for 5 words you get right, FreeRice will donate 100 grains. When you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.

Playing this game may make you smarter. It may improve your speaking, writing, thinking, grades, job performance, etc. Words that you have never consciously used before will begin to pop into your head while you are speaking or writing. You will feel yourself using and knowing more words.

The rice you donate makes a huge difference to the person who receives it. According to the United Nations, about 25,000 people die each day from hunger or hunger-related causes, most of them children. To a mother or father watching a loved child die in their arms from hunger, the rice you donate is more precious than anything in the world.
