Last week I gave a quick shout-out to Free Rice in a post about rethinking African aid. Since then, I’ve really gotten addicted to this website. You learn words and help feed the poor. What can be better.
The way the website works, you never get bored because the words are tailored to your ability level. So you could be a Chinese student learning English for the first time or a word Nazi over at the New Yorker. Works for both.
I think this is a great example of how the Internet has reinvented the nonprofit field. Not only does it make donating easier, but here’s a case where you don’t even have to shell out a buck. Definitely worth a play.
