100 grains of rice is approximately 1/2 teaspoon.

There are 48 teaspoons per cup.

Therefore you’d need 96 (1/2) teaspoons to get 1 cup of rice.

Approximately 9,600 grains of rice per cup of dry rice (yeilding 2 cups cooked).

Okay, go ahead and ask me why I’m going on so.


Yesterday, they had 185,367,060 grains of rice donated.

That’s an equivalent of 19,309 cups, in one day! (about 9,654 pounds — almost 5 tons)

“Since its Oct 7 launch in 2007, an average 500,000 people have been clicking on the game daily, accumulating enough rice to feed some 700,000 people for one day. . .” (found in this article)

All it takes from us is a bit of time.  (And you know, as a homeschooler, I’m couting it towards “school”!)

The little bits you add, may seem oh so “insignigicant”. . .but combined?  Impressive!


Back to the “slate”.
