Could You Live On $1.50/Day?



As a member of BzzAgent, I am sometimes invited to campaigns in which I get to try out products, share some coupons, and share the opinions of myself and others.   I enjoy this program very much because of this.

Recently, I was invited to take part in a different kind of BzzCampaign.  When I read the description, I *knew* that I had to join in.   I also was not required to blog about this campaign, but I'm choosing to because I think it's an awesome campaign and more people need to be aware of this!

The campaign is called Live Below The Line.  It is a charity campaign whose purpose is to try and raise awareness of the 1.4 billion people in the world living in extreme poverty, whose average livelihood is $1.50 USD per day.

There is a challenge going along with this campaign to either donate money to a charity of your choice to help these people, or to challenge yourself to feed yourself for just $1.50 per day for 5 days starting next Monday (May 7-11)!

I know that many of my readers are not in a financial situation where they feel they can donate much, or anything, so I am thinking that my participation in this campaign will be twofold:  it will raise awareness of the issue and it may help us cut our spending even a little bit more, perhaps finding a bit extra to give!

Starting Monday, I will be blogging each evening my three meals for the day, along with the cost break-down of each  (I've actually got one all calculated, baked, and ready to stash in the freezer!).  It's going to take a lot of forethought and calculations, but I think I'm up to the challenge!

I hope that you will follow along with me and perhaps learn a few more ways to cut your owns costs, and I'd be thrilled if you would join me in this challenge.  I will even add a linky to my posts if you'd like to blog your progress along with me!

In the meantime, check out the Live Below The Line Website, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube to find out more!
