Free Rice

I've just stumbled across a site called Free Rice. It's really cool - you go on there and do a vocab quiz, and for every word you get right they donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program. 20 grains of rice doesn't sound like much, but since the site started in October they've donated 6,306,039,81 grains of rice (and initially it was 10 at a time, not 20). I don't know how many grains are in a bowl... let's say there are 1000 - that's 630,603 bowls of rice in the last two months. Please check out the site - this is NOT one of those "if you send this to 5 squillion people Microsoft will send you a new laptop" scams. It's the real deal, and it makes a real difference to real people.
