Post 2 - How to be Charitable AND Lazy

In keeping with my goal of utter laziness today (I broke form for an hour and cleaned out shoes and did a load of laundry, but I got back on track), I found a website that I could spend hours on. And it's for a good cause!
At http://www.freerice.com/, test your vocabulary while donating to the hungry. For every vocabulary word you get right, they donate 20 grains of rice to the UN World Food Program. So far I've donated 3060 grains of rice and I'm still going. Is that, like, one bag of Uncle Ben's? Not sure.
My kids are hungry because I'm too busy on the computer to feed them, but the kids of the UN food program will be full of rice!
Enjoy your productive laziness!

Yes, I love that site! My students have competitions to see who can donate the most before missing a word.
