The Today's Show did a story on the problem with world hunger this morning and mentioned this website where people can go and answer vocab definitions to donate rice provided by sponsors. Since food prices have almost doubled, the food donations around the world do not go as far as they did to feed the already staggering numbers of starving people. And hey why not improve your vocabulary


Some bird related words I came across:

chanticleer
avifauna
ovobate


They also have geography, Art, chemistry, language learning, and math!
freerice


I got to level 43 on the vocab!
See if you can beat my score!


ETA: It's totally free to participate

Maybe if I beat you, you'd think I cheated...because I probably would...just so I could say I beat you.

But now I have to go bye bye.

We've been having fun at that site since last year here at the school. We've been competing against each other too and just having a blast. I'm glad you posted the site!

LOL! I gave my score to generate participation...it's the honor system ^_^


Writer of words, I would like to beat my score, but I have to get my chitlin to school soon...and my eyes started to glaze over a little
oooh.....there goes the Memory game spilled all over the floor... talk to you guys later



In the mean time this is a great time to have a resurgence of this game from us BYC'ers in light of food prices doubling....and more BYC members

I've played that before, it's fun, but do we have proof that they give rice to the people? Sorry ask people from my youth group and they'll say I'm a pesimist
