I was contacted by a PR company about Live Below the Line 2014, an innovative campaign that transforms the way individuals think and engage with extreme poverty issues.
So how to do that? Live Below the Line, presented by the Micronutrient Initiative, challenges participants to eat and drink for $1.75 a day for five days – the extreme poverty threshold that 1.2 billion people worldwide must survive on for all of their needs.
From April 28th to May 2nd, 2014, Live Below the Line participants will experience the true meaning of living below the line and can choose to raise funds for Canadian partner organizations including Opportunity International, Raising the Village and Ve’ahavta, whose initiatives and programs help eradicate extreme poverty around the world.
There’s no doubt that eating and drinking on $1.75 a day can be a daunting challenge so there’s a full day of recipes that fit within the $1.75/day budget.
I’d love to see if any of you can come up with recipes that fit this requirement.
