Photo Hunters - Free




free rice
I wanted to take this opportunity to promote the non-profit site FreeRice.com, which builds your vocabulary in exchange for rice donations to end world hunger (a win-win situation!). I first heard of it on NPR and have been addicted to the game since. It is a great cause and can be really useful for those teenagers preparing for the SATs. Plus it's FREE!

That was fun! I got 900 grains of rice. How much does it take to fill a bowl?

Natalie said...

I'm going to have to try that out!

Joy said...

You know, I've seen this on several sites, and haven't tried it yet.
Perhaps today's the day!

Free Rice - great idea for today's theme!
(Makes me want to go to the Chinese Buffet tonight!)

Okay - I took the challenge. I donated 3500 grains of rice by flexing my vocabulary!
I also gave you a shout out for this at It's A Blog Eat Blog World!

OMG- I have wasted sooo much time on that site that I have fed an entire village.

I am addicted to that site. Though sometimes I find myself arguing with their definitions--and their spellings!
