Blog entry How to earn more grains of rice?

03 December 2010

Apart from playing for more hours, increasing your knowledge so that you are able to fly through the questions or using Google for the questions that still defeat you – there is another way to earn more rice, while just going about your normal behavior online.

The Freerice Toolbar allows you to raise 2500 grains of rice for every 5 searches – so you earn rice while searching the web as you would normally do. It’s easy to install, and offers a neat reminder to play Freerice too.

At present, the toolbar is not synchronized with your Freerice profile but every grain helps, and your total raised through the toolbar is tracked there.

To find out more go to:

(You will find the Toolbar download along with a list of Frequently Asked Questions and a video with more details.)

Awesome! Now I can earn more rice while seraching up answers for Freerice questions!

Please join my group, Cooperation!

I am a common donater, donating at least 1000 grains a day. I just signed up for an account a few days ago, and since then I've been earning around 3000-5800 grains a day.

I still don't understand how is my searching helping you (WFP) get more rice. I understand advertisers pay for the rice when we play on your website, but who pays for it when we use the toolbar for search? Something fishy somewhere.

Why can`t we earn more than 5000 grains a day? I guess the organization has enough rice to defray more than 5000 grains to all the users...

Sun, 12/26/2010 - 01:58 otaviolimirio

Please, a toolbar for Google Chrome! ... Chrome has now more than 120 million users! ... 120 million x 2500 grains = food to a lot of people

Does the toolbar search work similarly to Google? And will I still be able to use Google? 'Cause Google's pretty darn legit...

I love the toolbar, but I have to go on Firefox (I usually use Chrome) to use it, so I don't use it that much.

I use Google Chrome so I can't use the toolbar. It would be great if you guys could make a toolbar compatible with Chrome 8 for Mac or even Safari 5.

Sat, 12/04/2010 - 03:03 Multiplication Ruler

Isn't it supposed to be 2500 grains? Still, praise the LORD for everything.
