Rice up against hunger!

Sometimes what is needed is something teeny tiny.  Or even better lots of teeny tinies.  

You may have realised that I spend quite a lot of time sitting.  I can't stay on my feet too long, that's just the way it is.  I do all sorts of things whilst I sit - I sew, knit, complete puzzles, enter competitions, complete surveys and quite a bit more.  I read blogs, surf the net, exchange e mails and all the rest of it.

But there is a very special site which I have been using for years and which I love.  It's  Through this site you can give rice through the Word Food Programme and it won't cost you a penny.

All you have to do is answer multiple choice questions on maths, science, language, humanities, or geography.  You even choose how hard the questions are.  For each correct answer ten grains of rice will be given through the World Food Programme.

I love it.  I've expanded my vocabulary, brushed up my geography and even ventured into maths problems.  The site is entertaining and free to use.

No matter how little money you've got you can make a charitable donation this way as no money is asked for.  There's not much that is tinier than a grain of rice but neither is there much which is more vital.  


  1. Sounds Fascinating. I must take a look.

  2. What a great site, I'm going to take a look right away.

  3. I got 700 grains of rice in short order. Interesting concept. Of course, it all leads to a monetary donation which I don't have to give.

  4. Oh my goodness - it's very addictive, isn't it? I went through all the levels in English Language and I'm very tempted to carry on with a different subject. I love quizzes and to find one that adds to my knowledge AND helps other people is brilliant. Thank you, Mary xx

  5. Am certainly going to have a go. I do like quizzes. Where on earth do you find all these useful sites?!! Mx

    1. I've been using Freerice for so long that I can't remember how I first found it. I spend far too much time on the pooter!
