May 8, 2012 - Smutty Shout-Outs
Global Poverty Project’s Live Below The Line campaign runs this week through May 11th. Participants have committed to eat and drink on $1.50 for at least one entire day during the May 7th - May 11th 2012 challenge week in order to shed light on the 1.4 BILLION people who live in extreme poverty every day. $1.50 is the U.S. equivalent of the extreme poverty line – a number that the Global Poverty Project hopes to change by increasing the number and effectiveness of people taking action to see an end to extreme poverty.
By giving a unique perspective of how limiting $1.50 worth of food and drink is, Kevin Connolly, Malin Akerman, Nick Lachey, Josh Groban, Bette Midler, and the thousands of other volunteers around the globe will campaign to raise money for NGOs who provide life-saving work focusing on issues of extreme poverty. The intent is to gain perspective into the lives of the 1.4 billion people living in the world’s poorest countries who have no choice but to live that way every day.
