First of all, thanks again for all the birthday wishes!

Secondly, I decided to start a thing, that basically amounts to you spending a little time of your day and getting free artwork in return.  It's called Cheesecake for Rice!

What is Cheesecake for Rice?

There’s a lot of turmoil in the world. Lots of people doing bad things to other people and consistently I find myself in the mindframe of, “Gee, I wish there was more I could do, but I’m in no position to be trying to help people when I can barely make ends meet myself”. And then I found FreeRice.

In a nutshell, FreeRice is non-profit, owned by The United Nations World Food Programme and uses the profits made from running banner ads on their site when you participate in the quizzes and get questions right. Which is fairly awesome and an ingenious way to get donations, when you think about it. I mean… I don’t have extra money or food, but I can certainly donate some time to help other people have food.

All it really requires is human participation from people who want to do good.

So, I decided that I want to get more involved, and that I want to help other people get involved as well. So I started a group over on the website, called “Cheesecake for Rice”. Basically, there will be a monthly goal set for number of grains donated in the group. If it’s met, I make a wallpaper or some other art incentive accessible to everyone in the group. Art incentives will always be cheesecake or beefcake themed with probably some kind of rice bit thrown in.

Don’t know what cheesecake/beefcake is? In so many words, stereotypically sexually attractive women and men respectively generally depicted in an art form of some kind. Among my friends and myself it more or less means ladies with big boobs and toned dudes meant to look attractive or aesthetically pleasing- we don’t really care much for the “stereotypical” part, or necessarily the “sexual” part. The art incentives will never be pornographic.

The month of December is my test run, to see how much interest I can garner and how many people actually want to participate. So as of now there’s no real monthly goal officially set, and I plan to make an art incentive at the end of the month regardless for those who are participating now.

I’m still trying to figure out how I want to do it, but I do want to make it so that the top grain-earners each month get some way to help decide what the art incentive is.

Still interested? What to know how to be a part of this?

First, go to the website and register.

Next,turn off your adblocker for the website. This is essential. The money to pay for all the donations comes from running ads on the site. They are silent and non-invasive.

Next join the group, Cheesecake for Rice!

Also, follow the tumblr blog if tumblr is a thing you do. Updates and announcements will be posted there along with the incentive artworks.


Quick notes:
»Once you join, make sure you have the group selected by either going directly to the group page or bringing up the group screen and clicking “Play”, afterwhich you will be directed to the categories of quizgames to play. 
»If you leave the browser idle for too long it may reset your game/earn streak or even the fact that you’re playing for a group. Make sure if you want to earn grains for the group, that the group name is displayed at the top in the navigation bar with the rest of your player information.
»Sometimes the site is slow, be patient with it.

Even if you're not interested, signal boosts are greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time,
Yoko
