I can't think that there would be any objections to posting this link


If you go to the site you get to test your vocabulary and for every question you get right they give ten grains of rice to feed the world's hungry. So far, from October 7th to November 12th, 1,519,627,180 grains have been donated - that would feed about 75,000 people for a day or 2,500 people for the duration so far. The quantities donated per day are growing at an impressive rate, yesterday's total was 188,987,290 grains or about one eighth of the total so far.

I've not got above vocab level 49 yet (unaided), how about you?
