From the good old Beeb’s online news:
An internet word game has generated enough rice to feed 50,000 people for one day, the UN’s World Food Programme (WFP) has said.
The game, FreeRice, tests the vocabulary of participants. For each click on a correct answer, the website donates money to buy 10 grains of rice.
The game starts out easy and gets hard fast. Before finally missing the word “behoof,” I got to vocab level 45 and “donated” 200 grams of rice, about half a pound.
