If you have the rice to give, why not give it all away right now?We are not sitting on a pile of rice¯you are earning it 10 grain
Yeah, I just gave 5000 grains of rice with the aid of dictionary.com
I`ve seen what stuff is like in the third world first hand...this is something I can do every day to help out, instead of merely going down once or twice a year for Project Mexico and building a house.
Does this count as community service too? :-P
Or.. do you let those 75 die, and teach them how to make their farms produce enough food for 50.. 100, a thousand people.. teach them how to cure, and prevent their diseases... teach them how to live withing the limits of their land, economy, and food supply. Teach them about looking to the future, instead of multiplying and spreading disease amongst themselves.
Yeah. People are gonna die, one way or another. But which is more humane? Which is right?
I suppose there isn`t any real answer. And no, I don`t think I`m a strong enough person to look a starving child in the eye and not give him my sandwich... no one is.
And thats the problem.
It`s a circular argument. And no, I`m not saying feed their own children to them. But people WILL die, and people WILL suffer one way or another. Teaching them to survive on their own, and within their means is by far the more humane decision. Lets look at some math. Say there are 100 people, who are all starving. The farms they work have enough to feed 25. (You are aware they do have SOME food right?) Do you send them more food? Sure.. then you have 200 people. Oh.. wait.. food ran out.. their farms still feed 25. Hmm.. 175 people bite the dust unless you send MORE food... OH! 400 people! 375 people suffer and die! On and on it goes. Whats this? 1st world countries are tired of spending every dime they have on feeding starving people? Never mind the fact that the majority of people living in first world countries wouldn`t part with 10 bucks a month for the cause, especially if it ment giving up potato chips...
No, each click earns you 10 grains remember, so 5000 points is 500 clicks and 5 cents.
Fair trade, not profit.
If each click gives $0.0001, then the highest scorer donated $0.50, not $0.05. There`s actually a big difference in how much food that is.
you are a cretin, it makes sense, they couldnt say they donated rice if they didn`t. that is illegal
"I refuse to do this. The answer to world hunger, ironically enough is NOT to feed all the hungry people. People with full bellies multiply.. then you have to feed MORE people... Starvation, and disease is the worlds way of equalizing a population to it`s enviroment. If you really want to help them, educate them, and hand out condoms."
I dont think that it is anything to feel good about.
100 grains of rice = 2 grams.Now 1 Kg of rice = Rs 20 per kg (approx) = $ 0.50
So the donation per page is = 10 grains = $0.0001.
In other words, a hundred correct answers will donate 1 cent to the charity.
I believe the advertising income is many hundred times more than that.
1900 grains for now, 42 vocabulary level. This goes to favourites though.
but it`s something. and i don`t know about you, but there have been a lot of times in which I, for one, wished I could do something to change the world. But it`s such a monumental task that few ever get around to taking action. It`s much easier to not donate any rice than to set up this project and at least TRY to make some kind of difference.
this is SOMETHING, and to criticize these companies for trying to make sure that children do not STARVE to death in conditions unfathomably worse than our own is DISGUSTING.
Anyway...Not fair! I suggested this link 3 days ago. Boo! :-P Very good website. I made it to 1000 grains and level 39 vocab. Must...get...to...50...
Rice is great if you`re hungry and want 2000 of something.
Anyway thats a really good website.
If you have the rice to give, why not give it all away right now?
We are not sitting on a pile of rice―you are earning it 10 grains at a time. Here is how it works. When you play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. So by playing, you generate the money that pays for the rice donated to hungry people.
