Because it sucks to be hungry! I'm Ronda Rousey, I'm cutting weight for the fight for the 135 lb world title and I'm hungry. How much more would it suck to be hungry every day? So I'm asking all of my friends and fans to be part of my freerice.com group to donate to the World Food Programme. When we hit 1,000,000 I'll send a t-shirt to the 3 highest donors. I have special prizes for the 3 highest donors as of when I weigh in on March 2nd. With 20,000 twitter followers plus my friends in judo and MMA, I'll bet we could donate 1,000,000 grains a day. That's enough to feed almost 300 people every day. Come on, play free rice, do good, get smarter and I'll send you swag.
Here is the link to join the group and play. It's free! Money is donated by sponsors.
Anyway .... we were talking about this and thinking that it would be possible to donate up to a million grains of rice a day. Someone said, well that's only enough to feed less than 300 people a day, that won't matter. Ronda's answer was that if you were one of those 300 people and you were starving it would matter to you. Apparently a lot of people agreed because in less than 3 days her group had donated over 2,000,000 grains of rice and was #92 in the world - up from 164 for the day before and non-existent the day before that.
