Free rice please

Dear Editor,

Recently, I wrote a letter urging people to visit
www.freerice.com and get rice donated to the hungry. I forgot to urge

them to donate the equivalent of at least one US dollar (or preferably

10) for every 1,000 grains they average per day, to Solar Cookers

International. If people getting the rice have solar cookers, they

won't have to cut down trees for firewood, causing severe

deforestation, and taking away quality time spent with one's children.
