Free Rice!

Have you ever heard of Free Rice?

It's a vocabulary gamesite belonging to the United Nations.

For every word you get right, 10 grains of rice are donated to feed the world (the rice is paid for by site sponsors).

Once upon a time we had a Prime Minister named Lester B. Pearson who won the Nobel Peace Prize. He is the man who recommended that nations give .07% of their national income to help feed the rest of the world. I think he would have enjoyed the Free Rice site.

One thing Lester Pearson would not have liked is the fact that his own beloved Canada has not yet met that .07% goal. Please help us get there by sending this letter to Prime Minister Harper.
