Day 5The same as days 1&3, except I had an additional 2 biscuits today. Which was just as well, as I'd eaten 5 of them before we got to dinner time! I've been struggling today. I want the cheesecake in the fridge. I want those crisps... But I can wait one more day. Many people don't have that luxury.
Day 4Exactly the same meals as day 2, except I foraged some wild garlic and dandelion leaves for some "green" (as well as clovers and daisies) and I foraged some wild cherries for dessert! I'm still extremely bloated and I'm missing my daily marmite fix!
Day 3Exactly the same meals as day 1! Starting to get a little fed up with the lack of variety, and I've been quite bloated this evening.
Day 2Breakfast today was the same as yesterday: a banana and a black coffee.
Day 1Breakfast was a black coffee and a banana.
My food for the challengeI usually do this challenge with my husband, which means more variety as we can share the items. However, I've managed to put together 3 meals a day, plus snacks, with my £5. Here is my list of items:
Hello! I am fundraising for The Hunger Project.
I will be living "below the line" by spending just £1 per day for 5 days.
Please make a donation and help me reach my goal.
What impact will your donation have?
£25 could fund functional adult literacy training for two women so that they can learn to read and write.
£30 could provide one woman with a microfinance loan and financial literacy training so she can start a small business, earn an income and support her family.
£65 could train a local volunteer leader who will educate mothers about the importance of pre-natal care to ensure their babies are delivered safely.
£125 could train one Elected Woman in India to be an effective local council member and ban child marriage in her community.
Every pound counts! Anything you can contribute is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
