Online game for a good cause

This is a fun educational trivia game, for kids or adults, with lots of categories, from English vocabulary to world geography, different languages and lots more. It's put up by the United Nations World Food Programme, For each question answered correctly, sponsors donate the cash equivalent of ten grains of rice to their fund. They've raised something like $1.4 million from the game so far.

You can play as an individual or create a group for contests. You can set the level of difficulty in the menu, and when you get an answer wrong the game show the correct answer. Just click on a category to start a game.

    @RustBeltCowgirl Glad you enjoyed it. I did OK on the current events, except for the celebrity questions, did fine on the English and History, but bombed Math and Science that i tried--typical history professor....haven't tried the others yet. It's a fun game though.

    @karenjanicki I think this would be a great game to play with kids. hope your nephews enjoy it.

    And be sure to create an account, so that your results register and the sponsors donate the money! I didn't realize you needed to do that for it to count the first time I played, and so they missed out on those points.
