With most Americans trying to pinch every penny during these rough economic times, there is a way to give without having to give up any money.
Since October of 2007, Freerice.com, a non-profit website, maintained by the United Nations' World Food Program, has tried to end world hunger while educating its millions of users worldwide.
Here's how it works. In the center of the web page, you'll find a word game like this -- all you have to do is click on one of the four definitions that best matches the meaning of the word and freerice.com donates 10 grains of rice to help end hunger.
And, whenever you get a question wrong, freerice.com gives you a second chance. The rice is paid for by the sponsors whose names you'll find at the bottom of your screen everytime you answer correctly. You can play and donate as much as you want, and change the subjects to anything from math to chemistry or even different languages.
