Mike Z sent me a really a great link that will allow you to use your geek powers to feed the world. The site is called FreeRice. When you enter FreeRice, you get a math question like 13 * 5. If you answer the question correct, you have just donated 5 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program. You can play as long as you want, so fill up your bowl. If you get tired of math questions, you can always switch to something else like vocabulary words or chemical symbols. Who pays for all that rice? I just filled up a bowl and my sponsors were World Hunger Relief 2008, Unilever, and a private donor. Pretty cool, huh. Thanks, Mike!
