Last week many news stories were about the rice shortage, due to the increase in price. Seriously? Is this where we're at now - rice is too expensive to get to the people who need it?
This blog is about books and reading, not world news. However, one way we can help sort of has to do with reading. If you head to FreeRice, you can donate rice 20 grains at a time. Just test your vocabulary, and for each correct answer, 20 grains of rice is donated to help end world hunger.
I'm sure many of you know about FreeRice already. If so, then here's your reminder to go back often. In March alone, FreeRice donated more than 4 BILLION grains of rice.
Even though I'm a writer, my vocab isn't that great. Best part about FreeRice? No penalty for incorrect guesses. You can even change the levels at which it quizzes you. Here's hoping you can learn a little something that will help you with your reading, while contributing to the greater good as well.
