I have achieved a milestone I thought I would never reach when I joined on New Years Eve 2006... 100,000 cobblestones of crunching!
If everyone could pile on and donate something... anything... 10,000 grains... 1,000 grains... 100 grains... to Freerice.

Together we can donate 100,000 grains of Freerice, and feed poor people!
I have already donated 1,000 grains to start us off. 99,000 to go!

The challenge ends 6 December 2008 23:59:59 New Zealand Daylight Time.

Thank you for your all your congratulations and donations, no matter how big or small!
So far, we have raised 17,760 grains of rice!

Mark, Mike, I am also of German heritage, and proud of it. Pretty easy stuff if you are or know German, but here is a link to Basic German in FreeRice

EDIT: Mark, I might be able to fit something in my sig, I got something like 17 chars left. I could TinyURL my boincstats info...
