According to http://www.freerice.com/index.php for every question you answer correctly, they'll donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program.

Boy, I'd hate to be the unfortunate intern at that company who gets to count the grains in this promotion!

Well I donated 2000 grains, I'll bookmark it.

It's sort of fun.

I'm up to 7,460 grains. Yes, it is fun, but words start repeating if you get them wrong, so it gets a bit tedious...

Well yes, perhaps a little mixing it up with words from other languages that aren't loaned into English.

It's not all that difficult obviously so I'd imagine they could make it fun and easy.

20 minutes and I'm at 1000....some of the words are tricky -- they have other meanings close to the ones given that make it easy to mis-guess
