Blog entry Strombo on why Freerice rocks!

19 May 2011

We like George Stroumboulopoulos not only because he is Canada's first official Ambassador Against Hunger for the World Food Programme, but also because he's an avid Freerice fan.

Strombo set up his group in October last year, and has helped raise over 6 million grains of rice already. You can join his group here: http://freerice.com/content-group/george-stroumboulopoulos

In the video below, Strombo talks about just how easy it is to change the world through Freerice.

Freerice is maintained by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian organisation fighting hunger worldwide. To find out more go to WFP.org

We play the multiplication tables subject in Math class and raise 2,000 grains every morning. I decided to get my own account and I'm so glad I did! It's so cool seeing that sitting on my couch playing a game on a laptop is actually making a difference around the world. Keep playing Freerice and save the world! XD
