How many times as a child were your told: "Finish your dinner. There are people starving in India/China/(insert third world countries) …"
Now, in all fairness, my parents didn’t really hold this one over our heads as kids. but we sure shootin’ did hear it a time or two. I have NEVER used this refrain on my kids … I fear inducing an eating disorder more than disappointing the leader of a third-world country. And let’s face it, how does my eating that last bite of lasagna really help those poor children anyway? Never could think of a way … until now: My darling Abi was going through all of the ‘wasting time’ websites when she happened upon this one www.freerice.com a fun and interesting way of supplying hungry people with rice, one grain at a time. Log on and help feed the hungry.
