    Go to www.freerice.com and donate some rice to the U.N. Food Program based on your vocabulary skills. (Here's a tip: Be sure to have time available and have a good dictionary close by). :cool:

    I heard the UN doesn't really distribute the food. I heard they come up with these grand schemes and then end up pocketing the money and starving the people who are supposed to receive the food.

    Maybe that's just a vicious rumor, though.

    I don't see how this can hurt. I hope they distribute the rice as promised, but even if they don't, it's not like you're losing out on anything. It's free and you can expand your vocabulary.
