Improve your vocabulary, take 2.

Fans of the popular FreeRice.com now have even more ways to learn words and make donations. In March, aidtochildren.com was launched to "bring aid to children in need through learning." When you visit aidtochildren.com, you'll be presented with a word a four possible definitions. Choose the right one and .25 cents will be donated to World Vision, the "relief, development and advocacy organization dedicated to working with children, families and communities to overcome poverty and injustice." Another fun and educational way to make a difference in someone's life.

Thanks for the heads up, BlueSky!

It seems that they actually only give .25 cents (that's ONE QUARTER OF ONE CENT) per correct word.

Also, the words need to be much more challenging like freerice.com. I'm really not learning anything here.

I have been on aidtochildren a few times now, I am trying to spread my time across a few charity sites.

I agree the first couple of levels are easy but things do get difficult especially at levels 4 and 5.

Thanks so much for the correction, Suzie. I'll make the change in the post. I agree the first few words are pretty easy, but they might be good for a child.
