My Challenge

Live Below The Line- £1 a day for 5 days!

The Hunger Project is a women-centred global non-profit that uses sustainable solutions to tackle poverty worldwide. To raise money for this charity, starting on June 14th, I will be living 'below the poverty line' on £1 a day for 5 days (food and drink!).

This challenge isn’t about ‘playing at being poor’. More than imitation, the challenge serves as an opportunity for contemplation and self-challenge. It holds up a mirror to your own privilege, forcing you to ask yourself- ‘if I found the challenge difficult, how would I be able to cope with the reality of extreme poverty?’. I am beyond fortunate that I will only do this for 5 days when this is the reality that billions of people face, and will likely face, for the rest of their lives.

Every pound counts! Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Thank you SO much.

Alex xx
