At first I thought that it was a little gimmicky--10 grains of rice? Big deal. But in the course of about 5 minutes, I had donated hundreds of grains of rice. You multiply that by the many people playing the game and you've got a load of rice. At no cost to you except the use of some brain matter.
I read how it costs about 25 cents to feed a hungry child enough to give them their daily nutritional needs. Then I think about all the food that I've written about lately--Thanksgiving, farmers' markets, Maine lobster, etc. We can take a few minutes out once in a while to help feed the billion people in this world who need food.
It's free and it's fun! Let me know what you think about it.
