Many months ago, Layla and I began going to FreeRice.com as a way to provide rice to people in the developing world who did not have access to a steady supply of food. Well, today we are going to go to another site that everyone can visit a few times a week, helping children in the world, while at the same time improving their vocabulary (win-win!).
This site is AidToChildren.com and they describe themselves as:
"AIDtoCHILDREN was developed based on a desire to help under privileged children in the most impoverished places around the world."
The website runs on the same principle as FreeRice.com, in that for every correct answer you guess on the word quiz, money (or in the case of FreeRice.com, rice) goes to those who need it. In the case of AidtoChildren, they donate .25 cents to children who need it.
For those of you who recognize the name, you probably do from a comment we received that alerted us to the cause, which we are glad to support.
The website has only been around since March of 2008, but so far that has brought $722 to those who need it. That may not seem like much, but to those who need it, it is a fortune. It also constitutes 2,888 right answers from those using the website.
Kudos to AidToChildren.com, for once again showing that you can help the world with a click of a button.
