FreePoverty

Test your geographical knowledge and help impoverished persons get water...

Yet another one of those "click on this and help a charity" sites (see The Hunger Site and Free Rice). They say that these sites are legit and contribute to the needy. In the case of FreePoverty.com, regardless of how much goes to charity, it is a fun quiz:



You're on the clock. Locate world cities and landmarks. The closer you get to the answer, the more cups of water donated.



Can you beat my score?

Nope. I got 438. Also, a mind-boggling number of small towns in Algeria and Argentina. Are they still building the database, starting with the A's?

I got 922. Mostly bouncing back and forth between Algeria and Argentina. It was my lack of knowledge of the pacific islands that got me in the end.

1025 on the second run through.
I'm thinking that the programmer is French by the amount of Algerian towns and other former French colonies that kept coming up.
