Creating people's geographies
… I mean wordsmiths.:) This sublime word game comes from FreeRice (thanks to Kilroy for forwarding it). Like The Hunger Site, it donates based on exposure and advertising. This site improves your vocabulary as well and is great for all adult ages and abilities; most importantly its also an excellent, interactive way to raise awareness about structural inequality, hunger and development. This is going to be a daily habit with me!

How it works:
From the FAQ
We are not sitting on a pile of rice―you are earning it 10 grains at a time. Here is how it works. When you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.
The rice is distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). The World Food Program is the world’s largest food aid agency, working with over 1,000 other organizations in over 75 countries. In addition to providing food, the World Food Program helps hungry people to become self-reliant so that they escape hunger for good. Wherever possible, the World Food Program buys food locally to support local farmers and the local economy. We encourage you to visit the United Nations World Food Program to learn more about their successful approach to ending hunger.
