Learning While Feeding the Hungry

For all of you interested in helping out those less fortunate and learning something in the process, you need to check out FreeRice. FreeRice works to provide education to everyone for free and to help end world hunger by providing free rice to people that are hungry.

Here’s how it works. On the FreeRice website you choose the subject you would like to brush up on. The subjects available are Art (famous paintings), Chemistry (chemical symbols – basic and full list), English (grammar; vocabulary), Geography (identify countries; world capitals), Language learning (French; German; Italian; Spanish), and Math (multiplication). Then you choose the level you want to start on, and you're off. FreeRice will donate 20 grains of rice through the UN World Food Program for each question you answer correctly.

I hope you’ll check out the FreeRice website too and help to feed hungry people while learning a little something while you’re at it.
