Default FreeRice (Stop World Hunger!)

http://www.freerice.com/index.php

A game of words; basically for every word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice. (From their sponsors payments, o' course)

How much rice have YOU earned for the hungry?

For those who think it is boring you could easily buy 10,000 grains of rice and donate that.

Rice is pretty cheap so It couldn't cost too much...
