Hipstreet 2gb Mp3 Player will not turn on or charge

My Hipstreet mp3 player will not turn on or charge. What do i do when it hasn't been working for 5 days. I cannot go without music, and i don't own a computer at home. Does a bag of rice work for mp3 players, as it did not touch any source of water.
