Name of event: 6 Degrees of Freerice
Brief Description of Event: 6 Degree of Freerice – is the theme of the first World Freerice Week starting February 6. Freerice is an online trivia game that donates 10 grains of rice to feed the world’s hungry for every correct answer you choose. So far, it’s raised enough to feed almost 5 million people. So it’s not your average trivia game. And, those grains of rice go to feed someone who is hungry– a person that is only six degrees away from you and I. If I recruit you, and five other people, and you in turn do the same – the online movement to fight hunger with exponentially explode! Learn more about it here:
