Living below the line
1.4 billion people around the world live on less than $1.50 a day. Can you? I’ll be participating in a campaign with BzzAgent and Live Below Line from May 7Th – May 11Th. Live Below the Line is a campaign that challenges individuals and communities to eat and drink on just $1.50 per day for 5 days.
By exposing participants to a glimpse of some of the daily difficulties experienced by the 1.4 billion people who live in extreme poverty every day, for everything, the campaign provides a unique window into understanding the realities of life for so many.
I’ll be updating you next week on the challenge and how it’s working for me. Thank goodness there is an online cookbook provided to help with tips on living for $1.50 a day. I know people that don’t think twice about spending triple that amount on coffee each day!
CARE helps women and their families through poverty fighting and disaster relief programs. To learn more about CARE watch this video and take the challenge to live on $1.50 a day for 5 days.
Check out Live Below the Line to sign up. Just choose BZZagent Network from the drop down menu. To join along.
