(Copying my own post from the Book of Face is probably the height of laziness, but eh, it’s guide week.)
Hey kids, I’m participating in the Live Below the Line challenge to raise money for Make Poverty History.
From April 28 to May 2, I will be living on $1.75/day. Why that amount? Well…
‘The campaign helps participants better understand the lack of choice and opportunity faced by people living in extreme poverty. 1.2 billion people around the world live in extreme poverty, meaning that they live on the equivalent of what you can buy in Canada for $1.75 a day every day.’
Yes yes, it is not the same as being in extreme poverty in the developing world, but it will still be a challenge. And I will be hangry all week (coffee will not be in the budget either), so beware.
I would be delighted if you could donate to the cause. If are able to do so, follow the link.
