Free Online Charity? A Review of the Free Charity Game Websites

A new internet phenomenon has sprung up these past two years. Free charity game websites pledge to donate to various causes if the visitor is simply willing to play an online game. The games available include simple word definition questions, geography trivia, number memorization and even crossword puzzle questions. The visitor is able to play for as long as he likes, donating increasing amounts of resources towards the designated charity.

It is now possible for a person to be selective about which site he wishes to spend his time on. Users can now choose from different games to play as well as different kinds of donations.

Which sites are the best? Which ones should you visit? Below is a summary of the current free charity game websites out there.

Freerice.com

Free Rice is the free charity game juggernaut. Since its opening on October 7, 2007, the site has donated over 41 billion grains of rice to needy communities. Free Rice plays a bit like a never ending SAT test. You are given a particular word, and four possible answer words are then listed below. The player must choose the answer that is similar to the listed word. If the player is correct, twenty grains of rice will be donated to the UN World Food Program. The site claims that playing the game may improve your vocabulary. The words used in the game get more difficult as the player answers more questions correctly.

Charitii.com

Charitii.com is an interesting and fun take on the free charity game concept. The game plays like a multiple choice crossword puzzle. The clues are similar to the ones found in crossword puzzles, and the answer is what you would be writing into the boxes. Some of the puzzles are quite creative, often leaving the player with an “A-HA” feeling after realizing the answer. For each correct answer, Charitii.com will donate five ounces of clean drinking water to the charity: water nonprofit organization. This organization will utilize 100% of the funds it receives to give water to communities living in poverty. The game plays quickly, and the water donations easily add up. The website claims over 10,000 puzzles in their custom database, and players are also able to submit new puzzles to the database for others to play. Charitii.com automatically adjusts the game’s difficulty level as the player solves more puzzles.

Freeflour.com

Freeflour.com is a web charity site that looks very much like the แทงบอลออนไลน์ Free Rice website. With the same boxy look and general layout, the website hasn’t changed much, but the colors are now brown instead of green. The website presents users with tough multiple choice geography trivia questions. For each correct answer, 1 spoon of flour will be donated on the player’s behalf. The site says that 100 spoons of flour are needed to make a single loaf of bread. Freeflour.com states that it will donate an amount of money that is equivalent to the value of the flour collected on the site to the “Bread for the World Institute.”

Aidtochildren.com

This site also looks quite a lot like the Free Rice website, utilizing the same boxy green style. The game itself is essentially the same as Free Rice as well. You are given a target word and then 4 possible answers. Like Free Rice, you must pick the word that best describes the target word. If you select the correct answer, $0.0025 (a quarter of a penny) will be donated to help buy gifts for children through World Vision, a Canadian relief organization.
