Quite simply, we’re building a movement of passionate people willing and able to make a meaningful difference to those who need it most.
Live Below the Line is challenging individuals and communities to see how much change you can make out of $1.50. By living off just $1.50 per day for food for 5 days, you will be bringing to life the direct experiences of the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty and helping to make real change.
Think about that figure - 1.4 BILLION - that's over 4 times the population of the United States - living every day in extreme poverty.
Spend 5 days feeding yourself with $1.50 a day – the U.S. equivalent of the extreme poverty line.
To give a glimpse into the lives of 1.4 billion people who have no choice but to live below the line every day – and who have to make $1.50 cover a lot more than food…
So here it is:
Yogurt - $.60 @ Kroger with coupon = $0.48
Sandwich I have to estimate this (bread 1 slice ham and 1 slice cheese) $.75
Manwich Kroger $1 / can with coupon = $.83
Venison (free thanks to hubby)
Buns @ Kroger $1
Strawberries Sam's Club $ 1.5 worth
Total = $3.33 / 4 family members (Caitlyn does not eat much) $0.83
Need my Diet Coke 3 / $12 = $.33 / can $.33
Ok, I went over. :(
But not bad. I can't see how people do it.
