Two of the greatest things in the world are teaching and helping others, FreeRice.com does both. FreeRice.com is run by the United Nations World Food Program and has found a fun way of teaching and helping others through gaming.

On the website, it says that they have 2 goals:

1.   Provide education to everyone for free.

2.   Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free
