How much do you spend in a day? Have you ever kept track?
Coffees, lunch, transportation, snacks…all incidental expenses above and beyond the bigger stuff that adds up easily without notice. But imagine that you had only $1.75 to spend daily for everything?
How would you do it?
This is the challenge laid out by the Global Poverty Project, an education and campaigning organization dedicated to raising awareness and funds for the 1.4 billion living in extreme poverty every day. Can you believe that that is equivalent to almost 20% of the world’s population?!
The thinking is that in order to be able to truly fight poverty, having a firsthand understanding of it is essential. And what better start than to undertake a 5-day challenge, living below the poverty line?
