Quickly: what’s another word for “jog”? What’s the capital of Nigeria? With the World Food Programme’s website freerice.com, you can hone your knowledge through interactive flash cards —and get this: for every correct answer you get, the WFP donates 10 grains of rice to starving people across the globe! This Thanksgiving season, give back to those people in the world not fortunate enough to afford regular meals, and be thankful that there is such a creative, education-oriented website that can help you donate by just using your brain!
True to the World Food Programme’s mission, freerice.com blends education with donation, finding creative ways to facilitate your indirect monetary donations; what does that mean? Well, when companies buy advertising space on freerice.com and wfp.org, the money that they spend on banners and ads is used to buy, ship, and distribute food where it is needed most. Freerice also has a supported search engine —by doing 5 searches with their engine, you can donate 2,500 grains of rice each day. I know that most people do at least 5 Google searches daily as it is, so why not search and donate?
In less than 5 minutes, I’ve just improved my vocabulary AND donated 150 grains of rice.
