free rice

so who’s paying for the rice?

“The rice is paid for by the advertisers whose names you see on the bottom of your vocabulary screen. This is regular advertising for these companies, but it is also something more. Through their advertising at FreeRice, these companies support both learning (free vocabulary for everyone) and reducing hunger (free rice for the hungry). We commend these companies for their participation at FreeRice.”

i’m warning you, this thing is very, very addictive. the first time i played i was up to like 3,000 some odd grains. finally i remember that since i’m at work maybe i should do some work and then i felt bad about stopping because well, the free rice thing is for such a good cause.

so play on playa, play on…
