Living Below the Poverty Line for 5 days – Here We Go

‘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.

You can show your support and donate here so that together, we can help eradicate extreme poverty


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.
