Feed Your Beautiful Brain

FreeRice.com Exercise your beautiful mind
FreeRice.com is a website that will donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program to assist in ending world hunger. What do you have to do? Just click on the meanings for the vocabulary words.

Here’s an Example
diminish means:

  1. investigate
  2. lessen
  3. nauseate
  4. merge

The correct answer is 2. lessen. If you get the question right, 20 grains of rice are donated. It is really that simple. No fees, no forms, you do not even have to register. :) I’ve been playing an hour a week for the past two months, and I’ve started to remember some of those vocab words from the SATs.

FreeRice has two goals:
Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

Be bionically beautiful inside and out!

Love it! Thanks for telling us about it. :)
I’m glad there are places like that and thehungersite.com (and it’s partners thebreastcancersite.com, etc.)… Increases awareness and gives people a chance to help in their small way.

Livy and Nenette, It *is* nice to be able to help out. Heck, I can even feel a little better about myself when I’m under-the-weather or just having a lazy day, and I have even been using some of the nice vocab words in my daily conversations.
