Want to donate to the needy and have fun at the same time?!

Yes, you can do just that by playing trivia games on www.freerice.com.
First just to say that this is a bona fide charity endorsed by United Nations World Food Program - wfp.org.
  
Since its inception, the site has expanded from the first English vocabulary to offering a range of subjects including art, chemistry, math, language learning and geography. The quizzes have many levels to choose from, and up at the higher end they are seriously hard. That means anyone can learn something here while donating to a noble cause.

You will be challenged, because, as you successfully answer tougher questions, the quizzes automatically respond by increasing the difficulty of the next ones.




 I especially like the "Identify Countries on the Map" game.


Every single correct answer donates 10 grains of rice to the UN World Food Programme. Six correct answers means 60 grains of rice, and so on, there is no real limit.


*Sponsored banners displayed on correct answers pay for the rice donated.

Over 90 billion grains of rice have been donated so far through freerice.com, which means that dozens of millions of people have already played it since 2007.


My dear Bloggers, play the game and try to win as much rice as you can. It saves lives every day!
Thank you!

  5. This is incredible. Thanks for post, these kinds of organizations help stem hunger and ultimately make the security situation in many of these countries better because it quells another problem.

  26. The identifying countries one is my favourite too.

  27. Why cant they just donate rice anyway?

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Dave By playing the game, you are donating the rice. They are just facilitating the game. That is the fun and self rewarding part of it. You get to answer questions correctly, and watch ads, which in return pay for rice.
