Be a Part of Ending Famine around the Globe! For Free!



FreeRice.com is a website dedicated to ending hunger around the world and at the same time improving your vocabulary skills! The money raised by the site is donated to the UN World Food Program.

It is absolutely free for you to donate. You donate by playing a vocabulary game. So easy! Well not the game, the donating part. A word is shown with four multiple choice options for you to pick out the correct answer. For each correct answer 20 grains of rice are donated. The accumulated plates of rice donated are shown to the right of the game screen. You can also view your vocabulary level as you play along. There are 60 levels! Click here to play.

How do they pay for it if you are not actually donating any money? There are sponsor banners at the bottom of the screen that do actual money giving. The sponsors make the payments directly to the UN World Food Program. Click here for the FAQ page of FreeRice.com.

More information about FreeRice can be found through the UN World Food Programme website directly. You may also choose to buy rice directly. For a mere $16.00 WFP can purchase a 25kilo sack of rice. Donate now!

Other ways to help end world hunger:



Poverty.com is where busy people can educate themselves about world hunger and poverty. On the opening page you will see the hunger deaths this hour, along with pictures and names. Really brings it home, makes it real and hard to ignore. Don't forget to print out a simple letter to be mailed to the president supporting 0.7% in international aid. Such a small amount can make a great difference in ending world hunger.


One Campaign, together as one to end hunger and extreme poverty. Please sign the petition to the G8 to keep its promises and support the end of world poverty and hunger.

“We call upon you to build on recent success in fighting extreme poverty by delivering your commitments on healthcare, agriculture and education and by helping citizens in developing countries in their efforts to improve governance and fight corruption.” (One Campaign Petition)

The Hunger Site

The Hunger Site provides staple food to the needy through their partners Mercy Corps and America’s Second Harvest. For every click 100% of the sponsors advertising fees go to feed the hungry in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Latin America and North America.

Sign-up for e-mail reminders and they will send you two free “peace” bracelets and two extra cups of food will be donated.

Just a few minutes of our time, a few clicks can make an enormous difference to those in need, and it doesn’t cost a dime. Please check out my one-click donate links on the left hand navigation bar. There is also a one-click donate food and care for animals.

Happy trails to you!
