The UFC 175 weigh-ins are exactly 6 weeks from today, which is why it only makes sense that the Free Rice contest begins again NOW. It’s easy to enter, just join the group “Ronda Rousey- Team Real Mean and play the game to donate rice.
For every correct answer, 10 grains of rice are donated by the ad sponsor. The ads displayed on your screen vary with every question you answer, this is what pay for the rice. The great thing about this contest is that it gives you an opportunity to make a difference and help feed hungry people without spending any of your money at all.
Before each title fight, Ronda hosts a Free Rice contest to raise food for the hungry, since she is cutting weight and knows what it feels like to be hungry. Between the last four fights, she has helped donated more than over 128 Million grains of rice to the World Food Programme. Since one bowl of rice is about 3,400 grains and comes out to about 3 cups of cooked rice, that is enough to feed approximately 37,778 people!
Here is how to win autographed prizes while playing Free Rice:
1. Be in the top five donors OR donate a million grains of rice. (Donating a million grains of rice is easier than it sounds – 35 people have done it so far, and by the way, it feeds 294 people!) We will send you a limited edition, autographed poster courtesy of Ronda Rousey, Xyience, and Armbar Nation (shown below). These posters are full-sized event posters that measure two feet by three feet. The top 5 people who contribute the most rice during Ronda’s UFC 175 Free Rice contest will also receive a unique autographed gift from Ronda as a special thank you for your generosity.
2. Be lucky. Out of all of the rest of the people who have donated, we will pull three people out at sort of random. We’ll weight your chances by the amount of rice donated. Ronda’s mom, Dr. AnnMaria, is a statistical programmer and does those sorts of things for fun. If you have donated 300,000 grains of rice you have 30,000 times the chance of the person who donated 10 grains – but they DO still have a chance. Hey, people buy lottery tickets, right?
3. Donate $500 (to either the World Food Program or St. John the Baptist Church) – Email us a copy of your donation receipt to TeamRousey@armbarnation.com and we will mail you out your autograph. Please keep in mind that this is a charity event, and all of the people working to make this Team Free Rice campaign possible are volunteering their time to this effort. So we ask for your patience in receiving your autographed items, as we will send them out one time per week.
Contest Ends: As of UFC 175 weigh-ins on July 4th, and the final results will be calculated.
*HELPFUL HINT* Make sure when you are playing that it shows up as “Ronda Rousey- Team Real Mean” as your group at the top right if you want the group to get credit.
Thank you for feeding hungry people, by the way. To quote Ronda, “It sucks to be hungry”.
