Other than raising money, it raises awareness of the issue. So far, people in Swaziland, Rwanda and Ghana have benefited from (PRODUCT)RED.
Designed not for consumers to buy things just because it is behind a good cause, (PRODUCT)RED but because of the idea that someone was going to buy it anyway. (ie. iPods, Gap clothes, cell phones, holiday cards)
So when the holidays are just around the corner and you are purchasing your Hallmark cards for the corporate holiday parties, your significant other wanting that iPod or a new shirt for a relative, keep in mind the (PRODUCT)RED label and where that percentage of your money will go.

Lets be honest. Studying vocabulary was never fun in school and many of the words you saw on the SAT, you saw for the first time. But, it is never too late to broaden your vocabulary and there is a way that I think is GOOD ENOUGH...TO PRACTICE.
At www.freerice.com you can see how well you know your vocabulary for free and for every word you get correct, the UN donates 10 grains of rice to help end world hunger. The website is just shy of a month old, and the UN has already donated 680,991,930 grains of rice!
* (Nov. 15, 2007) FREE RICE was aired on the CBS evening news with Katie Couric.
