Solve World Hunger

AND play online!

Now when I tell Mr. Ashley to let the dog in, and he asks what I'm doing, I can say "I'm solving world hunger, what are you doing?"

Because there is a really fun vocabulary trivia game and for every answer you get right, their sponsor donates a few grains of rice to some poor people or something.

I just started and have already donated 400 grains, smarty pants that I am.

So go to www.freerice.com and solve the world's problems with me. Because that is DEFINITELY more important than laundry.

I can almost hear it now, "What's more important, Mr. Ashley. You having clean underwear or starving kids having rice? Huh? Huh?. That's what I thought."

I'm hooked on it. I've donated 40,000 grains so far. Heck, it's a great way to pass the time, but it just draws you in!
