      Hi,

      I have started a group on FreeRice.com called "Harry Potter Fans Fight Hunger" For those of you who are not familiar with FreeRice, it is a website where you can answer multiple choice questions on a variety of subjects (English vocabulary, Famous paintings & artists, Chemical Symbols, Spanish vocabulary, World Capitals, etc) and for every correct answer you earn 10 grains of rice for hungry people around the world. This is distributed through the United Nations World Food Programme. It's fun, educational and worthwhile!

      The UN World Food Programme (WFP) distributes all of the rice that you donate to help fight hunger. It is the United Nations frontline agency in the fight against global hunger and the world's largest humanitarian organization, working closely with many other organizations in over 75 countries.
      In addition to providing food, WFP helps hungry people to become self-reliant so that they escape hunger for good. Wherever possible, they purchase food locally to save on transportation costs and to help boost local markets.

      If you are interested here is the link to the group.

      You will have to register (it's free) and then join the group. To have your totals count toward the groups totals each time, login, go to the group link and then click "play" from there.

      Currently we have 16 members who have earned 20,200 grains of rice since I started the group on Oct 18. This is without any advertising, so I am hoping for a big jump now. I think it is possible to have 250,000 grains donated by the end of the year, all from Harry Potter fans!

      I apologize if you get multiple copies of this from multiple Harry Potter groups. And I also apologize if this breaks the rules for any of the groups. I promise it is a one-time mention and it is for charity, so I hope the breech of protocol will be forgiven.
