Make Words Count With FreeRice


By Cari Martens

Play a word game to feed the world! FreeRice is a computer game that tests your vocabulary. For every correct word, there are 20 grains of rice donated through the United Nations to end hunger of the world. You can play as long as you want, and it’s really quite fun! The not-for-profit program is funded by some really big players including Fujitsu, Apple, Time/Life as well as many, many others. Go ahead and play. You’ll feel good knowing someone out there will be able to eat tonight!
