A friend sent me a link to Free Rice, a wonderful web-based word game that improves your vocabulary, and each time you get an answer right a sponsor donates 10 grains of rice to a poor country. Brilliant, don't you think?
Anyway, I'm curious to know how much do 10 grains of rice weigh, because I'd like to donate 1 meal (I think 100 grams of uncooked rice are about right) every day.
so that means till now (25th OctobeR) freerice.com has (232,745,430 multiplied by 0.23 divided by 1000) contributed approximately 55,000 kilos of rice to UNFP.
and by further calculation you need to answer approx 43 question right everyday
to give the 100 grams of rice as meal.
uh... it's more like a couple 1000 grains of rice to make a meal.
