How much do 10 grains of rice weigh?

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.
