Charities

Children International’s mission is to bring real children living in poverty. In partnership with contributors, they do reduce their daily struggles, and provide them with the opportunity to grow up healthy, educated and prepared to succeed. Their goal is to affect the lives of impoverished children, their families and communities through their programs to relieve the burdens these people face and improve their quality of life.

All is well! Http://www.freerice.com/ is a cool web site that does just that. It’s a simple vocabulary question and answer game (that’s addictive, too). For every answer you get right, the site donates 20 grains of rice to the United Nations World Food Program. The vocabulary game is run by a computer program that automatically adjusts to your skill level.
