Live Below The Line Campaign

I am a member of a community, and we are called BzzAgents.  WWW.bzzagent.com  We are participating in a fundraising campaign called Live Below The Line.

WHAT IS LIVE BELOW THE LINE ?

WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO?

Live Below the Line is a campaign that challenges individuals and communities to eat and drink on just $1.50 per day for 5 days. By exposing participants to a glimpse of some of the daily difficulties experienced by the 1.4 billion people who live in extreme poverty every day, for everything, the campaign provides a unique window into understanding the realities of life for so many.

Through the insights gained over the 5 days, Live Below the Line is assembling a movement of people passionate about eradicating extreme poverty. Through partnerships with various charities, the campaign raises both awareness and critical funds.

I am asking that my followers help with this cause, either by going to www.livebelowtheline.com and creating their own profile or donating through my profile here.  I am going to be participating in hopes to understand what some people go through on a daily basis.  I am lucky enough to not have a shortage of funds to feed my family, nor a shortage of food itself.  Not everyone is that lucky, so let’s help them out as much as we can.  If you create your own profile you can choose out of several charities that the money you raise will go to.  I have chosen to donate to UNICEF.  You can read a little bit about what UNICEF is here if you are unfamiliar with them.   If you choose to participate in this by either doing it yourself or donating I would like to thank you ahead of time.  Live Below The Line provides a cookbook for download here along with other resources to see how this campaign has worked in previous years if you would like to participate.  I truly hope that you at least look into this campaign and spread it around to help raise money for people who really need it.  And THANK YOU again for reading this.  🙂
