Who said computer games are mind-numbing and counterproductive? We've stumbled across one that helps you hone your vocabulary skills while providing food aid to those in need.

FreeRice is a nonprofit Web site where visitors can play a vocabulary game. Each time a player selects the correct meaning for a given word, 20 grains of rice are donated to the United Nations World Food Program, which works with more than 1,000 organizations in more than 75 countries. Revenue gained from advertising sales pays for the rice.

The game automatically adjusts to your vocabulary level, then allows you to advance as your skill level improves. It's fun — give it a try!
