Could You Live On $1.50 A Day?

TSM

Ben Affleck plans to give it a try, at least for a week.  Beginning Monday, Affleck joins Josh Groban, Sophia Bush and The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston in a “Live Below the Line” campaign. 

The purpose is to encourage people to live on the extreme poverty line of $1.50 per day for five days, Apriol 29 through May 3.  “1.4 billion people live on less than $1.50/day” Affleck tweeted.   “I’m joining Live #BelowTheLine on behalf of @easterncongo.  Will you?”  In 2010, Affleck founded the Eastern Congo Initiative, a U.S.-based charity that provides economic and social development opportunities for the people of the Eastern Congo.   “We recommend that you spend your entire budget of $7.50 at the start of the week,” reads the Live Below the Line website.  “We recommend doing research and creating a shopping list, sticking to generic staples such as pasta, lentils, rice, bread, vegetables, potatoes and oats.”
