[Web] Charitable Vocabulary Building

I got this little gem from WebWare - FreeRice is part-vocabulary game, part-charity program. The premise of the site is amazingly simple - a word will be flashed and you choose the correct synonym from a list of four words. Get it right and they donate 10 grains of rice to the world's hungry. Get it wrong consistently and they lower the difficulty of the words being shown to you.

There are 50 levels of difficulty when it comes to the words and they determine whether you go up or down if you get strings of 3 correct answers. It's a pretty fun game and the puzzles are more than challenging. Best of all, just by playing the game you're helping feed the hungry given the program is supported by the advertisers whose banners appear at the bottom of the page. I've noticed some pretty well-known brands so the site seems pretty much legitimate.

So try it out, feed the hungry and challenge your friends!
