Comments from Freerice Donor Relations Officer::
Yes, the Freerice.com website is an innovative initiative to raise funds for the purchase of rice for the world’s hungry. WFP is happy to have been selected as beneficiary of this creative idea.
Freerice.com is quite new and we were only recently asked to be the beneficiary. We are working on placing information on our own website to promote the initiative and to reassure people around the world who, like you, are enthusiastic about it, but cautious about participating in an activity that may not be what it claims. We expect to have initial information on our site within a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, we encourage you to spread the word. The site has become quite popular and every grain counts! So, indeed, play, polish up your vocabulary, and keep the donations coming!
