Have you guys seen this website? by Ellerd on 17 January 2008 12:33pm

For every question you answer correctly, the site's sponsors donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program. Pretty neat!

Yes, I think someone put it on here before. I have it on my favourites and if I have a spare few mins I go back to it, and 'do' a 1,000 grains.

Great cause, but not a very efficient way of doling out rice. They must spend an inordinate amount of time counting the rice. How many grains of rice to feed one person for a day? Hah hah.

I hope it's true...that 20 grains of rice go to the hungry for every correct answer.

I donate 1000 grains of rice almost every day. I love word games, so it's a win-win.

Yeah, I've been going there for a while, it's tons of fun and it helps me be a better person too. :)

Oh dear, it's addictive! (Having studied Latin really helps with the guessing....)

You're so right G ! Us lapsed Catholics at least have a vocabulary for our troubles !

Thanks for the link. Ellerd. Addictive, it is.

John, I am not a "lapsed" Catholic! I am an escapee from that misogynistic organization. However, the Latin does come in handy. If I'd been at the boys' school I would have had Greek, too, but the powers-that-were considered it to be much too difficult for the female mind.

I got to level 49 at the freerice site (although I usually hover around level 47.) If I had had the Greek I might actually make it to level 50.
