Blog entry Give thanks - Give Rice

23 November 2010

One of the easiest ways to help a hungry child this Thanksgiving holiday is to play Freerice.

As Nancy Roman, from the World Food Program (WFP), put it: “Thanksgiving is certainly a time when those who have enough to eat gather to enjoy a big meal, and Freerice is the perfect way to do something fun that gives others a chance for a meal too.”

Since its launch in 2007, thanks to the time and brain power of players such as yourself, Freerice has helped raise enough funds to feed more than 4 million people for a day in countries like Uganda and Bangladesh.

This Thanksgiving, one way to help and still have fun is set up a group for your family and play together to help feed the hungry.

To create a group, go to follow the easy instructions, and then invite your friends and family to join you!

(Post your groups link here so we can share your action with other players?)

Me and other people actually set up a group called minethings, it is called that because we all play an online game called minethings, and we decided that since we spend time online quite a bit we should try to help out the community also since we play together we are all freinds in our group, so feel free to check out our group if you want, its pretty cool because we play a game together.
