While menu planning for our annual New Year’s eve gathering here in the FAB East kitchen, I came across this very cool site. Free Rice is home to a word game that really tests your knowledge, but has a great purpose: Help feed the hungry. For every word you get right, 20 grains of rice are donated through the United Nations. That’s great, but how do they pay for all of this rice? It’s simple, like millions of web site owners, they generate income with Google’s Adsense. This is very cool, and more than a little bit addictive! A tabbed browser makes it easy to cheat, which is a good thing in this case.
Believe it or not, I found this through Emeril’s blog
