Last month I posted about about a great vocabulary game called Free Rice.  It’s a wonderful game for English Language Learners and anyone else, too.

The game site says that a donation is made for every correct answer in order to purchase rice to assist the hungry.  When I wrote the original post, I said I didn’t know if the donation commitment was true, but that I really liked the game.

Yesterday the BBC published a story quoting United Nations’ officials as saying the game has generated enough funds to feed 50,000 for a day so far. 

So, play away and help the Third World while you’re at it….
