Freerice has donated over 98 BILLION grains of rice since its start in 2007. Just by teaching people.
But you're (not) just playin' (games on Freerice.com).
Freerice has two goals.
1. Provide education to everyone for free.
2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.
Not bad goals.
Lofty though. So, how are you gonna do that, Freerice?
1. By being THE brain teaser (and quizmaster) for basically anyone.
2. By donating rice every time ANYONE gets an answer right.
Every time you get a correct answer on one of their quizzes, Freerice donates 10 grains of rice to people who are hungry. Boom. Simple.
One correct answer = 10 grains of rice donated through the very legit United Nations World Food Programme.
I remember playing their vocab quiz game when Freerice first started in 2007. My sister and I would go back and forth, learning big words and trying to feed the most people.
Learn new words, give people rice, what's not to love?
Well, now I love it even more.
Freerice has grown from just being vocab quizzes in its early years.
Now you can learn things such as these:
— Multiplication tables
— SAT prep (!)
— French vocab
