Freerice Quiz for Social Good

As my alumni buddies would attest, there's got to be rice during meal times and fast. Or my usual smiling face would turn to an ugly scowl. Well, today, I learned how can I share the rice that I really loved to others.

Here's when free time, internet connection and knowledge of the English vocabulary can lead to a worthwhile activity like giving free rice to the hungry.

FreeRice is a non-profit website run by the United Nations World Food Programme.

On its website - - you can play an English Vocabulary quiz wherein for every correct answer you get, Freerice donates 10 grains of rice through the World Food Programme to help end hunger.

Today, I was able to answer 107 in the quiz. That means 1070 grains of rice donated to feed those who are hungry.

As a bonus, I was able to learn a few new English words, such as

beanie = skullcap
boor = uncultured person
waif = homeless child
prestidigitation = sleight of hand
timpani = kettledrums

Visitors can also try other subjects for the quiz such as Math, Geography, Chemistry, Humanities, other languages or flags of different nations.

Now, I know what to do whenever I'm experiencing mental block or just simply passing the time online. I would go over that site, improve my english vocabulary and accomplish some good.

Hat tip to Mashable which enumerated 7 Ways to Do Good Online Beyond Donations.

Maybe you should try it out too! :) Let me know how you fared on the quiz by bragging about it on the comments.
