Over the last months I have spend some hours on the website http://www.freerice.com as well as spread awareness about the site to others.
http://www.freerice.com is a non-profit website owned by the UN World Food Programme, The purpose of the website is twofold:
- Provide education to everyone for free
- Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free
Basically, as you play educational games you earn points, and each point leads to donations of rice. I am not sure how much rice I managed to donate in total but even if it was just a couple of portions it is worth it (plus hopefully by telling people about it, a few more bowls of rice could be distributed to those in need).
I think this site is a great idea because it allows people to donate even if they don’t have money to give.
To play the educational games and start donating rice: http://www.freerice.com

Freerice is a non-profit website that is owned by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme.
Freerice has two goals:
- Provide education to everyone for free.
- Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.
Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.
Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide.-+
