Play to Help End Hunger

I don't normally play games on the web. However, here is one that my neighbor told me about. I play almost every day. It's called FreeRice.com, and I am addicted. For every word you define correctly, 20 grains of rice is donated to the United Nations World food program. My best Vocab Level so far is 44. Try it by clicking on the banner below:




I just found a site that will donate cat (and dog) food to animal shelters in central Oregon. 12 year old Mimi Ausland and her parents started freekibble.com, which is patterned after freerice.com. Answer a daily trivia question and 20 pieces of kibble will be donated to the Humane Society of Central Oregon and Furrytail Farms. They hope to eventually distribute food for cats and dogs in shelters all around the country. If you go to that site, check the press link and watch the NBC Nightly News video.

Site is no longer available.
