Free Rice

A friend sent me this link and I thought I would pass it on...

Help end world hunger

For each word you get right, we donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger.

I've been keeping the window open and playing while waiting for other sites to load. Definitely added some words to my vocabulary (and have donated over 2500 grains of rice so far!).

Yo! My name is Chris and I'm reaching out to world-conscious blogs. I noticed that you blogged about free rice, and I'm working with a small startup called Avanoo that is developing a similar concept. By going to our site ( and putting one of many badges on your blog, every time someone clicks that badge, a dollar is donated by a corporate sponsor to the non-profit!

We're still in beta, but we wanted to spread the word as much as possible. If you can help us show others how, together, bloggers and web users can raise funds and awareness for good causes by using our collective power, I'd really appreciate it. Maybe you'll even blog about us!

Thanks for your time,
