Blog entry Freerice in Motion

23 November 2011

Freerice like you’ve never seen it before! This brand-new video is another reminder that Freerice is not your average trivia game....

We hope this video will help introduce the site to new players. Why is that important? Because the more people who play, the more rice we raise and the more people we can help. So far, we have raised enough to feed almost 5 million people.

The power of Freerice lies in everyone doing our small part. So please share this video with friends and family, and let's rice up against hunger!
