Since I’ve been writing a lot about the items I crossed off on my activities & adventures page, I figured I should also write about some of the items I’ve completed on the kind acts & volunteering page.
If you haven’t used the site Free Rice before, I’d highly suggest it! Not only is it a lot of fun, but you can also help in the fight to end world hunger. I was first introduced to the site by my high school teacher and have continued using it periodically.
Freerice.com contains various subjects: English Vocabulary, English Grammar, Famous Paintings, Literature, Multiplication Table, Basic Math (Pre-Algebra), Chemical Symbols, German, Spanish, French, Italian, World Landmarks, Identifying Countries on a Map, World Capitals, Flags of the World, Human Anatomy, and even SAT preparation.
Here’s an example of an English vocabulary question I took from the site (I promise the difficulty levels increase):
If you get the answer correct, you donate ten grains of rice to hungry people. A bowl at your right will illustrate your progress as you continue to answer questions correctly and if you get an account you can permanently track the amount of rice you donate.
On my account, I told myself that I wanted to donate at least 10,000 grains of rice and was thrilled to have reached that goal, but hope to continue using freerice.com in the future.
I figured I would share this site, as I’m not sure if a lot of people know about it and it’s a fun way to learn new words, while helping to try and end hunger!
So has anyone else used freerice.com or is hoping to check the site out, so you can add helping end hunger to your bucket lists? What other fun volunteering experiences have you had?
On a side note, I just got all four wisdom teeth removed a few hours ago & can officially cross that off my bucket list (not that it was ever on my bucket list for real!) If anyone has any tips about that too, it’d also be greatly appreciated 😉
