FreeRice Operation

November 28, 2007

May I remind you that the United Nations FreeRice operation is still on. A nice and useful way to give food, and test your English vocabulary at the same time. Personally I hover between levels 41 and 47, not something to be proud of, but I’m in just for the rice. I earned one kilogram in about 30 minutes. Incidentally, some (not all) of the difficult words come from Latin, so they are not always difficult to recognize.

As of November 26, the total donated was 3,993,119,570 grains of rice, over a 20-day period.
