FreeRice: Play to End World Hunger

My friend Gia told me about a game/donation program FreeRice which uses a vocabulary-based game to generate rice donations for the United Naitons to end world hunger. According to the FAQs:

The rice is paid for by the advertisers whose names you see on the bottom of your vocabulary screen. This is regular advertising for these companies, but it is also something more. Through their advertising at FreeRice, these companies support both learning (free vocabulary for everyone) and reducing hunger (free rice for the hungry).
Go and get yourself some free learning and help someone hungry. It's good for body, mind and soul.
