A Challenge to Feed the Hungry: Freerice (FOR FREE) Sites and postings that go viral come and go.
We can be enthralled by the news for a moment, then our attention shifts to something else different. That is how society operates. There are so many stories fighting for our attention that we have to shift fast from one concept to another.
I’ll admit that there have been days when I’ve wasted far too much time taking Buzzfeed tests linked to What Disney Character Best Portrays You. Don’t get me wrong, they were entertaining and it was enjoyable to compare my performance with my friends, but the truth is that I was only spending my life with emptiness when I could have been working to make a difference in the world.
Due of its 2007–2008 viral success, some of you may recall Freerice while others may not. Given that it has now been 7 years, don’t you think it’s time to bring it back into the spotlight?
because we have the ability to aid the folks who go hungry every day.
The idea is basic. You go to the Freerice website and begin answering questions about various topics to earn grains of rice for those who are in need! Additionally, you can choose to register an account so that you can challenge friends in other groups and keep track of how many questions you correctly answered. This is a fantastic way to engage in some friendly competition while also helping people who are hungry, whether they are located nearby or 7,000 kilometers away.
There are some current topics that you can ask questions about:
Humanities English Language Learning Math Chemistry Preparation for Science and Geography Exams (SAT) IS IT EXPENSIVE? No! You won’t have to worry about paying anything because Freerice is supported by sponsors (unless you want to donate). All you have to do to begin filling the rice bowl is put your thinking gear on and respond to the questions. You receive 10 grains of rice for each correct response, and the quantity keeps going up as you receive more accurate replies.
Amount of rice donated by FreeRice
I’m going to give you two numbers right now:
43,942,622,700 and 2,146,335,746 (taken from the Freerice totals )
You’ll see that there is a difference of more than 41 and a half billion between the two. Sadly, the first number represents the quantity of rice contributed in 2008, while the second number represents the quantity provided in 2017. (2014).
No offense intended The globe is still assisting people in getting food, and these numbers are still astounding, but there is SO much more we could be doing!
My challenge to you is to take action. Sincerely, I have no idea why I haven’t visited Freerice more often. By this time, I can only speculate how much rice I could have produced if I had simply responded to 20 or so inquiries per day. We could easily surpass the 43,942,622,700 grains of rice contributed in 2008 if everyone in the world did this.
So, this is what I’m suggesting:
The next time you’re bored at work, need to study for a test, are getting ready for the SAT, want to test your friends’ intelligence, have a few spare minutes throughout the day, or just have a heart to help people (have I covered everyone yet? ), log on to Freerice and answer some questions.
Even though you may not have any money to donate or the means to personally meet the recipients of this rice, you can still utilize your knowledge to change the world.
Everyone, hurry up We were created to make the most of our minds and intellects. Let’s carry this out!
