Ben Affleck Commits To Live Below The Line!

ben affleck josh groban sophia bush live below the line poverty hunger charity campaign

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.

WOW! We absolutely ADORE this!

We're not sure if it's the new BF, the brown hair, or the Vegas residency deal, but whatever the reason may be, we haven't seen Britney Spears acting this much like her old self in a seriously long time!

ESPECIALLY after you hear this!

According to reports, the pop starlet was on her way in to an El Lay pharmacy when she overheard a homeless man by the door begging for change, and immediately went to a nearby ATM and withdrew $100 just to give to him!

Isn't that just so unbelievably compassionate?

Apparently, however, the sentimental moment quickly turned into a HIGHlarious miscommunication, as the man was so overtaken with gratitude that he startled her and caused her to scream by picking her up in a big bear hug, prompting security to confuse the situation for a robbery!

This is definitely not how that money should have been used!

Unfortunately, it looks like pretty damn important funds were misused in Nigeria back in 2006 under the watch of then-Governor Goodluck Jonathan.

So not okay!!

Beyoncé and Jay-Z were brought to Nigeria for the very first ThisDay Music Festival in Lagos, but the way they were paid is now under scrutiny.

It has been discovered that Bayelsa officials approved
