Go to www.freerice.com and do your part to eliminate world hunger while you test your English language skills.
What a cool site!
And talk about viral. The first day the site began donations, 830 grains of rice were donated. 77,126,310 grains of rice were donated yesterday!
FreeRice is a sister site of the world poverty site, Poverty.com, and according to its site, has two goals:
- Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
- Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
So, check it out, test (and hopefully improve) your English language skills, and get some rice in the mouths of those who need it most. The more words you get right the more grains of rice are donated. It’s that simple.
In this case simple is very good.
I salute the folks behind freerice.com for not only creating a great site for two great reasons, but also creating something that is actually "viral" – one of the most misunderstood and overused terms in business today!
