Blog entry "Friday Freericer": A Good Reason for Fun

08 September 2011

As the working week winds down, your thoughts may become less about work and more about fun. You may surreptitiously play Solitaire and watch the minutes pass till the weekend, while trying to look busy.

Does that sound familiar? If so, you should join our Friday Freericers group, dedicated to having fun while fighting hunger worldwide and learning something new. It's a legitimate reason to avoid work every Friday.

Anyone can join whether you're at the office, at school or wearing pyjamas in your kitchen. The group is new, so you will be a founding member.

This week - Sept 09: find the secret bonus question on Freerice, to claim your reward. To take part join the group and click "play" on the group profile page on Friday or click "play" from our list of groups. Invite your friends to see who can reach the reward first.

Update: the bonus question is now live. Here's a hint: it's hidden in the English Vocabulary section.

Happy Friday, Freericers!

The people over in the horn of Africa are not healthier.They are worse than people in this country,they're starving and you're saying their healthier.I'm not sticking up for America or anything,I mean how do you think we got the term "lazy Americans" but don't you see?These people aren't healthy they're starving.THAT'S THE WHOLE REASON FOR THIS SITE!To keep them from starving and to keep them fed.They're barely scraping by and you say that's healthy?I am feeling a mixture of utter shock and utter dissapointment in the people of common society.They're not healthy or happy,they're unhealthy and desolate.the just want a beter day and I just can't believe how exasperating some people are!!!!

I use this website with my 2nd graders. We usually work with grammar. I have my students write the correct answers on white boards. We start off by keeping our weekly total. Once we get further into the school year, I have my students graph the amout of rice we have donated each month. We set goals of how much we like to earn. Each month we try to earn more grains of rice than the pervious month. They love this game, it's fun, educational, we are doing out part to make the world a better place :) Many of the students play at home also.

For right now, I have 8,050 grains of rice sofar so that means I only need 991,950 grains to go.

Like I said, I think that the Friday Freericer is a good idea except for the part about playing Solitaire because not every person wants to play Solitaire, but it can be fun to just LOOK busy!!! 8D LOL!!!

Mon, 09/12/2011 - 01:33 PigLover454

I think this is a great idea! A great way todonate more rice. 8D

Joining the Friday Freericers has messed my ranking. I'm only partially shown and without my unser name. I think this happens also by joining other groups or started to play in groups. Who else has this problem?

Can you please add another few levels to Basic Math (Pre-Algebra)? Sorry to bother you ... it's just that it's a bit simple for me.

I am in it to find it. Although, how will we know if we won? 8D\ B1

English is my strength, this will be a piece of cake, or a bowl of rice I should say. HAR HAR 8D. I just need to find the cake cutter. and a bowl for the rice.

How will we know if someone has already found it?

@pitcher12k: Yes! You will see an image announcing that you are a winner and see a link to your reward.

It's not a cash prize, or anything you can sell. It's just a small way of saying thank you for taking the time to raise rice for others.

Update: the bonus question is live!
