Tow the Line

A few week’s ago, I wrote about an initiative from World Vision called “Do the Famine.” It appears they’re not the only show in town that’s raising awareness about world poverty.

With support from celebrities like Ben Affleck, Josh Groban, Sophia Bush and Debi Mazar, the “Live Below the Line” campaign asks participants to subsist on just $1.50 a day for five full days to better understand just how good they’ve got it (and how tough life can be for more than 1.4 billion people around the world). This one’s not affiliated with any particular religious group; its roots are actually Australian via the Global Poverty Project.

Help Ben and friends put an end to extreme poverty by living below the line from April 29 to May 3. Just think of all the money you’ll save on groceries.
