‘Overcoming poverty is not a gesture of charity, it is an act of justice’ – Nelson Mandela
This week, I’ll be living on $2 a day to raise money for people living below the poverty line across the world.
The following photo is what I’ve purchased for my 5 day challenge. Goodbye coffee, goodbye yummy pumpkin seed Helgas bread, goodbye honey (why is honey so expensive?) and hello Coles’ white boring yucky bread and lots and lots of pasta! I must admit, I was quite surprised at how much I could actually purchase for $10 – even peanut butter! I’m not going to deny, it’s going to be a bit of a challenge but as soon as Saturday rolls around, I can go back to eating like normal, whereas others simply do not have that option. So that is the reason why this is such an important cause.
