Blog entry Video of the Week: You're Not Starving

07 April 2011

Recently Team Freerice noticed the large number of Freerice videos on Youtube posted by passionate and dedicated players, to help spread the word and encourage others to help to raise more rice.

So far we have managed to raise enough to feed over 4.6 million people, purely through word of mouth. So starting today, we will share once a week one Freerice video created by you with other players to inspire, encourage and entertain.

This week's video comes from mellystar92, who explains why she dislikes it when people use the phrase, "I'm starving!"

We will be searching for newly added videos every week. If you would like us to find your video simply: create a video, post it to Youtube and make sure to include the word "Freerice" in the title and tags. If you have a username or group, include the link in the descriptions so we can find you on Freerice.

why people only talk about african people starving???? theres lots of people in other country starving too, like many rural part of asian countries. think about them also. Free rice should consider giving food to these people also like countr from india,pakistan,bangladeshmshrilanka etc.

Yeah, people that don't have to worry about actually starving take it for granted. I'm sure that the majority of US citizens don't have any idea how it's like to have no/barely any food for a long while.

Freerice is a great place for learning and donating. Hope they keep it up! :)

Oh my goodness, I'm watching tv right now and someone just said "I'm starved!" and he clearly wasn't starved. He wasn't, like, crawling and begging for food, he ran all the way to the kitchen, so he clearly wasn't starved. Evidence that proves that this happens.

Yeah, often at lunch, people are like "Oh, I don't feel like eating this banana (or something like that) so I'm just gonna throw this away", and I'm like "Oh yeah, well some starving kids in Africa would greatly enjoy that banana, so think about that". I've actually gotten kids to eat it instead by saying that. Yay for not wasting food! :D

I totally agree. You're hungry, not starving. That's just being dramatic. Unless you haven't eaten in like, two to three days, you are not starving.

I talk about starving people all the time. Someone might say, "I don't want my peas, they're too dry," and I'll say, "Oh, poor baby. I'm sure STARVING CHILDREN IN AFRICA would be OVERJOYED to have your peas that are 'too dry.'"

I agree with you!
