It’s not every day that you get a chance to help end world hunger – and it won’t cost you a dime. FreeRice.com is a website sponsored by the United Nations World Food Programme. Every time users answer trivia questions correctly, the UN donates rice to hungry individuals around the world.
You can go directly to the website and start playing immediately, without having to register. You can also choose to create an account and keep track of how much rice you’ve helped donate, create groups, and help donate food to specific groups.
Although you’ll see vocabulary words when you first go to the website, you can also access different types of trivia questions if you click on the “Subjects” button at the top of the page. You can answer questions in a number of different areas, including humanities, math, chemistry, and geography. There’s even an SAT prep section for college bound students. There are also several different difficulty levels, so the whole family can play.
Sometimes it just feels nice to give back, even if we don’t have the money to donate directly. Just keep in mind that FreeRice.com doesn’t make a dime from their users. All money donated or raised from advertisements on their website goes directly to helping end world hunger.
