Have fun Playing the “Freerice” Vocabulary Game at the Same time Helping Feed the Poor with Rice

Have fun playing the “Freerice” vocabulary game at the same time helping feed the poor with rice.

Do you want to enjoy playing games plus widening your vocabulary and at the same time feeding rice to poor people? Come on in and play the game here so that you can share and help to those who are hungry. Play the game here.

You don't need to give any donation, Just click the correct answer and then you are able to give your share to feed the hungry people.

Freerice is an Internet word game which tests the vocabulary of the people joining in and then for each and every click of the correct answer the website will donate money to buy grains of rice. Companies advertising on the website provide the money to the United Nations World Food Programme (UN-WFP) to buy and distribute the rice. FreeRice went online in early October and has now raised 1bn grains of rice. That is enough rice to feed 50,000 people for one day.

 

The head of the UN-WFP, Josette Sheeran, said: "FreeRice really hits home how the web can be harnessed to raise awareness and funds for he world's number one emergency."

She said word of the game has spread with the help of internet bloggers and websites like Facebook and YouTube.

How do you play the game:

In the website when you choose to click the link here. There will appear a word with sets of meanings and then you will then click or choose the correct answer, then the question and word becomes harder once you answered it right, if you are wrong then the next word is easier. For every correct answer you get, they will donate ten (10 ) grains of rice to the UN-WFP.

So come on now play the game now it is very easy, you don’t need to give money and enjoy widening your vocabulary too,

FreeRice is the invention of US online fundraising pioneer John Breen.

I had not heard of this. What a wonderful way to do your part. We spend so much time on the internet playing and reading, why not try something that you can actually learn and help at the same time. Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
