test your vocab, earn rice for the hungry

    Got this forward from my mom:


    For every vocab question you get right 10 grains of rice are donated to an international aid agency. I've donated 200 grains from this game, and 100 from a previous game.

    This site is kind of like thebreastcancersite.com / thehungersite.com / whatever other tabs there are on the top of that page. All you have to do is click your mouse to make a chartable donation.

    It's food for the brain and stomach.

    I donated almost 300 grains and got to vocab level 36. :)

    Does the game ever end? Or do you just stop whenever you want?

    I just stopped. I'll go back later. Gotta write a story. :)

    Same here. I donated 600 grains of rice and got my vocab level as high as 40 before missing a couple and dropping to 37. Not bad.

    Does it ever end? I'm at 400 and bored.

    I don't think it ever ends...just like people's need for food (wow does that sound corny).

    I got up to level 42 before missing. Those are some wild words, though.

    Together, we at SportsJournalists.com can fire enough synapses to provide the equivalent of one box of Minute Rice®.

    Got to level 42, I believe, although I had no real knowledge of the words I was getting right. Just used the roots.
