You're Smart. They're Hungry. What a Great Combination!

Did you realize that your massive vocabulary (or lack there of - Ha ha ha!! just kidding) could actually feed the hungry all over the world? Or how about those skills you got in 11th grade learning the periodic table in chemistry class? Think those could put food on the table for some poor kid in Africa?

The answer is YES!! I stumbled upon this website called that actually couples your ability to learn with the generous donations of multiple sponsors to end world hunger. How cool is that!

And its free! And it's fun! Believe me I tried it. Try as I might I couldn't make it past level 35 on the vocabulary test but I'll be polishing up my skills in the coming future.

They have all sorts of subjects to test your knowledge out including geography, art, chemistry, grammar, vocabulary, foreign languages, etc. So what are you waiting for click the link already!

Help end world hunger

That was fun, thank you.
Frustrating, too, though. I got to level 52, but then dropped back a few by getting several wrong in a row.
An excellent time-waster... but I can see it becoming borderline addictive for some people. (Not me, of course -- Mama raised me better than that. Really.) But at least somebody will get a benefit from it.
(Makes me wonder why the sponsors don't just give the max possible amount of aid, instead of letting the aid level be set by how many people are willing to spend how much time playing their little game. But that's above my pay-grade.)
Anyway, I might never have found this if it weren't for you, so thank you.
