Challenge~Live Below the Line

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.

Through the insights gained over the 5 days, Live Below the Line is assembling a movement of people passionate about eradicating extreme poverty. Through partnerships with various charities, the campaign raises both awareness and critical funds.

If you don't think you can live off $1.50 a day yourself, pass on the information and the Live Below the Line website to friends and family who you think will be up for it. Be sure to tell them to choose the BzzAgent network from the drop down menu on the Live Below the Line sign-up page so we know my Bzz is working!

May 7th-11th are the challenge dates, are you up for the challenge. I am going to attempt to do this challenge. We will see. I need to eat to produce milk in order to nurse my baby. That has me thinking, how do those moms do it. Survival of the fittest, like my mom said. My mom had to nurse one of my uncles who is the same age as I am because if not he would die of hunger. My grandmother was not producing any milk and they were too poor. This is a true story of my family, and one of many. So I will be attempting this challenge and am asking you to share the link, donate, tweet. We need to help each other.

***Disclosure-No compensation was received. I am a bzzagent, and I am spreading the word.
