You may know the 6 Degrees of Separation theory: you and I are connected to every other person on earth through at most six other people.
This is the inspiration behind "6 Degrees of Freerice", the theme of our first World Freerice Week running February 6 - 12, 2012.
The idea is simple. You create a group and recruit six friends, they in turn recruit another six people, and so on... our online movement to fight hunger will exponentially explode! And many more people will discover Freerice.
(For those who don’t know, Freerice is an online trivia game where each correct answer earns 10 grains of rice for the world’s hungriest – it’s an addictive online game with a real-world impact. Those grains of rice will go to a hungry child who is only six degrees away from you and me.
When: Six days, February 6 - 11, 2012
What: Between February 6 and 11, create a group with “Freerice6” in the title (or join an existing group). Recruit 6 friends to join it. Ask each friend to recruit another 6 friends, etc. and play Freerice like crazy! The earlier you start, the better.
Take a look at How to Create a Group, to below.
How to Win: A Flip cam and Freerice T-shirt will go to the group founder with the most members, the group founder whose group raises the most grains, as well as the individual who raises the most rice. The largest group members list will also go up on the Freerice Wall of Fame until next year’s World Freerice Week.
But everyone wins – you have fun, become smarter, and help the hungry!
