Free Rice

There is an awesome site that everyone should check out. It's called Here's how it works: You get quizzed on words. Every time you get one right, you earn points towards increasing your vocabulary level. More importantly, every time you get one right, the site donates 20 grains of rice to feed starving people. Instead of simply wasting time and getting meaningless points for playing an online quiz, you FEED STARVING PEOPLE. Your knowledge is actually USEFUL.

In addition, the game is designed to actually teach you and increase your vocabulary. It's a win win. You get smarter and starving people get to eat. How often do you get a win-win in life?

My name is Dorian and I'm reaching out to popular blogs. I'm working with a small startup called Avanoo that wants to give bloggers the opportunity to raise awareness and funding for causes that they care about by putting a badge on their blogs that looks like the one below.

We haven't launched yet, but we're reaching out to a few top bloggers, now, to help us test our technology and spread the word. If you can help us to show others how, together, bloggers and web users can raise funds and awareness for good causes by using the power of our voices, I'd be so grateful.

Thanks for your time,
