So todays cliff moment is

This is a great site! You get knowledge, the people who need it get rice.

It's a website with a vocab test! I know! Totally Fun! Anyway, for every right answer, 10 grains of rice is donated, 5 correct answers, 50 grains of rice! This is legit and you don't have to fork over any money! Here's the thing.....

About FreeRice

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

FreeRice has two goals:

  • Provide education to everyone for free.
  • Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by the generosity of the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your education can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide.

So go ahead, get smarter and let others eat!
