Free Rice Game…

Welcome to the Modern Typewriter, a daily blog to discuss topics that can’t be answered easily, or are just some fun topics! Today is June 26th, 2008, I’m Rochester, and I’m here to tell you about a game called Free Rice.

Free Rice is a vocabulary game dedicated to giving rice to poverty-struck places.

They give you a word, and you have to find the synonym of that word in the list they give you. The list will contain four words, and the synonym will be in the list.

If you choose the correct synonym, you earn twenty grains of rice to donate. You can keep going on and on, donating rice if you wanted to.

“I think that the Free Rice game is a really fun game and it’s addicting too.” says Royce, a writer at the Modern Typewriter. “I played for about two hours and donated over 4000 grains of rice.”

“It’s a good way to get kids to understand that the world needs to help out the poverty-struck places. I’m glad that the creator created this game.” says Melanie, another writer at the Modern Typewriter.

The website is located at freerice.com

“I just love to play. It advances my vocabulary skills, and I’m helping the world, it’s just wonderful.” says an anonymous viewer.

Remember, I’m Rochester, and this is the Modern Typewriter, OUT!

  2. Yo! My name is Dorian and I’m reaching out to world-conscious blogs. I noticed that you blogged about free rice, and I’m working with a small startup called Avanoo that is developing a similar concept. By going to our site (avanoo.com) and putting one of many badges on your blog, every time someone clicks that badge, a dollar is donated by a corporate sponsor to the non-profit!

    We’re still in beta, but we wanted to spread the word as much as possible. If you can help us show others how, together, bloggers and web users can raise funds and awareness for good causes by using our collective power, I’d really appreciate it. Maybe you’ll even blog about us!

    Thanks for your time,
    Dorian

    Hey Dorian,
    We would love to put one of your badges on our blog! We just finished placing it up there, and we chose Mike’s Dog House.

    We really love your program and think that this is a great way for people to donate money to charities such as Mike’s Dog House.

    We will indeed blog about you and your company.
    Thanks for commenting! With your comment, money will now be donated in order to save helpless animals.
