COMPUTER GAME CAN INCREASE VOCABULARY AND FEED A HUNGRY PERSON

Melissa, the winner of my Victoria Magazine giveaway, has done a post about a great Feed The Hungry program. Check it out at FREE RICE.COM.

You click on an answer that best defines the word given. If you get it right, you get a harder word. If wrong, you get an easier word. For each word you get right, 20 grains of rice are donated. Increase your vocabulary and help to feed hungry people. Food is distributed through the UN World Food Program.

In about 15 minutes I donated 2000 grains of rice. Every little bit helps, doesn't it? When you get to the site, read "Options" and you can set it to save your previous scores and you can challenge yourself.

Thank you, Melissa, for highlighting this very worthy program.

Hi! Thanks for stopping by to see the White Violets! I had hoped you would see them! They just showed up last year and we have been on our farm for years and years! It gives me great pleasure to find woodland gifts!!
