Good Deed Friday: Addictive Do-Gooding

392205125_b39d5741a6
One of my favorite computer-related pastimes is checking out our reader site talktoparents.com. I was cruising through the forums when I came across some wonderful webtastic ways to do good, fast. This of course, led to a new, even more obsessive pastime: freerice.com.  As reader, attardaz, put it, “It’s a site where you answer vocabulary questions. For each answer you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to the UN. It doesn't seem like much but they have already donated 59 billion grains of rice. Plus, it helps improve your vocabulary.  Be careful, it's addicting!”

And I just found out, you can choose different subjects to be quizzed on. Chemical symbols, here I come!

    What a great way to give back. If we look for small ways every day to give back, it adds up to big changes.
