    Hey everyone,

    Here is a site http://www.freerice.com/ which provides your a platform to donate rice while you are playing quiz games and also having some fun.

    For each quiz question being answered correctly, 10 grains of rice will be donated to the people in hunger all over the world.

    p.s. here is also a short video about Freerice reaches Bangladesh:

    http://www.wfp.org/videos/freerice-reaches-bangladesh

    Everyday, 25,000 people die from hunger, but you can save them simply by playing online quiz games, plus you got more funny and useful knowledge.
    Every grain of rice you have donated matters a lot to the people in hunger.:)
    ( There are about 500 million people who can access to the internet, if only 100 million of whom answer 100 questions each day, then 5 million hungry people can get their meals for that single day.)

    I've liked this site for awhile, but I can't seem to get above level 46; I need to work on my vocabulary I guess.

    This site has been mentioned on these forums many times over the past weeks.

    That being said, I love rice. The quizzes are fun too. My favorite one is where you have to fill out about 100 questions that ask things like "What's your favorite food?" and "Who is the last person you kissed?"

    Oh, and the vocabulary isn't bad either.

    this has been around for a couple years.. everytime i hear it work.. i just picture the poor people sitting and waiting for someone to answer a question for them to get ten grains.. sounds awful, but i guess it's a good idea?

    lol hmm, maybe you can just simply treat it as a normal quiz game, which i think is a good one and have much fun to play.:)
    Anyways, if you like quiz games, you are gona enjoy this one.;)

    This seems like a scam to me. Very few people are too poor to afford rice, and they are helped by the world food organisation...

    I'm crap at this myself, but I sent a link to my friend who memorises facts about countries, where they are on the map, languages etc, so she'll do good at that subject for sure! :)

    You can also go to:

    www.thehungersite.com

    You can just click a button, if you don't have time to play the quiz game.

    While freerice, AFAIK, is a legitimate site, we have had numerous account created here purely for the purpose of spam promoting it, and so I'm closing this thread at this time. Thank you for your understanding.
