You've heard about Live Below The Line, right??
The challenge is to live on $1.50 of food and drink for at least one day between April 29 - May 3 to raise awareness about extreme poverty — doesn't really sound that hard to be honest, but we're dealing with people who are accustomed to decadent things! It might be harder than you think!
Not only did Ben Affleck commit, but so did the likes of Josh Groban, Sophia Bush, Hunter Biden, and husband and wife Cooking Channel personalities Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos! The whole point is to help people empathize with the 1.4 billion people faced with brutal hunger and poverty, and encourages global citizens to participate and raise funds to support the partner organizations.
Here's what Josh Groban had to say about it:
“Taking on this challenge last year was such a humbling experience for me, and I was so proud and heartened by my fans that joined me. I wanted to capture this in Below the Line, which was inspired by this experience. It’s amazing how much we take for granted not having to live in hunger, and I am honored to have been asked to help spread the word about this eye-opening campaign again this year.”
If you want to support one of the campaign’s nonprofit partner organizations doing life changing work around the world, you can donate to Opportunity International, World Food Program USA, Happy Hearts Fund, The ISIS Foundation, Eastern Congo Initiative, U.S. Fund for UNICEF, GVN Foundation, CARE, The Somaly Mam Foundation, Rainforest Foundation and Milaap!
It's worth it! More info HERE!
