donate rice and improve your vocabulary at the same time!

as we head into a week of thanks and (let’s be honest) gluttony, here’s a great little game that’s been floating around the internet these past few weeks. really, to call it a came is not enough. it’s an extremely creative donation tool, getting people involved in giving rice to those in hunger. test your vocab knowledge. every correct answer donates 10 grains of rice. you can play as long as you’d like, and see the quantity of your rice donation adding up.

i knew many of the words, had to make educated guesses on many (based on parts of the word), and completely uneducated guesses on others. i think i have an ok vocabulary, but not a great one. my “score” seemed to hover around 38 and 39, whatever that means.

this would be great to pass along to the kids in a youth group, btw.

here’s the game: free rice

  1. Very cool. Like you, I don’t know what the “score” means, but I’m hovering around 42 or 43. I’ll be sure to pass this along to my college group and to as many others as I can. What a great, simple way to help people.

  2. ooooooooooooooooh my goodness this game is absorbing my whole brain. i’m averaging 39. the occassional forty actually releases endorphins.

  3. I got stuck doing this all day one day about 3 weeks ago…and I never got over 39…might have to try again today. Sigh. But have work to do…

  4. love it! i’m a fan of words anyhow…hard to believe that i got zebu right at the 40 level due to watching veggie tales.
    had to get words wrong to get down to level 2 so my 7year old could play. she thought it was great to donate rice!
    thanks for this fun way to help hungry folks!
