I just found this website and I wanted to share. It's a great and simple way to make a difference. Freerice.com is a cool site that asks you questions in several different topics (you choose). For every question you get right you donate 10 grains of rice to underprivileged areas in the world. If you sign up you can even track your total donated rice. This is a wonderful way to help others and it takes only a few minutes to do. I think this would also to a useful tool and have children use and to learn about helping others who are less fortunate. Check it out for yourself.
