It's easy to forget that childhood poverty is a devastating reality in the United States. A few years ago, in a New Yorker article entitled "Spoiled Rotten," Elizabeth Kolbert wrote: "contemporary American kids may represent the most indulged young people in the history of the world." Evidence of that claim is all around us.
We like to think of ourselves as a generous nation in the UK - especially with the success of our national fundraising appeals like Red Nose Day and Children in Need. There is a lot of visible giving in this country, from high-street charity shops to fun runs and sponsored stunts. But actually, the culture of giving in the UK is not as strong as we think.
This game was made for free to support UK's Red Nose Day. Rotate the pipes by clicking on them so that they connect from the pump to the crops and animals before the time runs out. Watch out for spillages, and don't forget to pump the water to get it moving. One of the most popular flash games ever. It's had millions of plays worldwide.
