Blog entry The Countdown!

10 February 2012

Today is the 6th and final day of “6 Degrees of Freerice” – the theme of our first official and annual World Freerice Week! Thanks to you and your network, people who haven’t played Freerice before are joining forces with us and “riceing up” against hunger! Our community really responded to the challenge to recruit six friends, and have those friends recruit six additional friends, etc. The results have been amazing.

In just the last five days, we had almost 400 Freerice 6 groups created, and thousands of people join on Freerice.com. And it's not over yet! There's is one more day to go so it's not too late to make a difference in the lives of world's hungry by recruiting more friends to join and invite their networks, too.

Don’t forget - there are still prizes up for grabs! A video camera and a t-shirt wil go to the group founder with the most group members, the group founder for the group with most rice raised, and the individual who raises the most grains out of all the other Freericers in the “Freerice6 groups”.

One last thing - today is also about YOU and everyone who took part in “6 Degrees of Freerice”. If you haven't already, take a photo of yourself holding piece of paper with the words "6 Degrees of Freerice: I recruited {Insert Number} people" and upload it to Flickr including "Freerice6" in the tag and title so we can find it. Then spot yourself in the "6 Degrees of Freerice" photo gallery

Freerice is maintained by and supports the United Nations World Food Programme, the world's largest humanitarian organization fighting hunger worldwide. To find out more go to WFP.org
