Can You Survive on Just $1.50 of Food and Water a Day?
The Global Poverty Project is inviting engaged idealists the world over to spend only $1.50 a day for food and drink for five days to raise awareness for the 1.4 billion people who live below the extreme poverty line.
Because 1.4 billion people in the world live on less than $1.50 per day.
Because 10 percent of the world's income goes to women, despite the fact that women work two-thirds of the world's working hours.
Because 950 children die every hour from hunger or preventable diseases.
Because 884 million people in the world don't have access to clean drinking water.
In 2012, roughly 15,000 Live Below the Line participants raised over $3 million dollars for organizations working to fight poverty globally. The Global Poverty Project wants to double the number of participants in 2013.
