FreeRice.com -
Charity Organizations that BellaOnline Supports


FreeRice.com is a relatively new site with a great idea. The site is in essence a "vocabulary game" which lets you build up your vocabulary as you play. Everybody can benefit from having a better vocabulary! Each time you do well, the game donates actual, real rice to a starving family. So by playing, you feed people.

How this works is that sponsors pay for the banner ads to show up on the site. You don't have to click! Some people do click, though, and that helps to ensure that the rice can keep flowing.

Each time you get a word right, you feed someone 20 grains of rice. The grains add up quickly! Just how many grains does it take to feed a person, though? I was very curious about this and actually sat down with a container of rice and counted them. It took a while :). The answer is there were 2,345 grains of Uncle Ben's rice in the quarter cup of dry rice. That then equals a cup of cooked rice to eat.

Looking at various packages of rice, a 1/2 cup of rice is considered a serving. So a serving of rice, in grains, is about 1,100 grains.

So keep playing at FreeRice and get yourself up to 1,100 grains - to feed a hungry person!
