It is easy to feel a bit helpless with all the suffering that goes on in the world.
Like when you hear facts like "925 million of our fellow human beings suffer from malnutrition." How lucky we are to have an education, food in our bellies and even access to the internet!
Wouldn't it be awesome to be able to do something every day to help alleviate someone else's suffering? Wouldn't it be so cool if the next time your child expresses desire to help a world cause you can give them something to do immediately?
Janae introduced me to the website, freerice.com. I want to pass the recommendation on to you. It fuses education and charity in a fun way.
You or your child answer quiz questions from a variety of subjects, from English to grammar to geography and more. For each question you get right, freerice will donate 10 grains of rice to the hungry through the United Nations World Food Programme. Get inspired by watching your virtual pile of rice grow on the screen!
