Learn Free Vocabulary & Give Free Rice

In a previous post, I discussed how video games are being used to spread the sustainability message. Now there is Free Rice, an online vocabulary-building game. For each word you get correct, they donate 10 grains of rice to feed the hungry through an international aid agency. The rice is paid for by the advertisers on the site. Over 2,000,000 grains of rice are donated daily. Go ahead, test your vocabulary, expand your knowledge, and give Free Rice!

Update: rice is distributed through the UN Food Program.

Love the concept. Feeds the love of learning and giving back in one entertaining package! Do we know which international agency(ies) they support?

They're vague on the site..
