Feed the Hungry By Increasing Your Vocab

Huh? How does increasing your vocabulary help feed the hungry? The folks at FreeRice started a website with a vocabulary game where they give you a word with four possible meanings and you pick the correct definition. For each word you get right, FreeRice donates 20 grains of rice through the United Nations to end world hunger.

If you're like me and question the legitimacy of just about everything, I bet you're wondering why they don't just donate the rice in the first place if they have a bunch of rice sitting around. The way it works is that when you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money from the ads buys the rice. See where the rice goes and then help feed the hungry.
