Live Below the Line – 2016

As the new week begins, thousands of brave individuals across the globe embark on Oaktree’s annual Live Below the Line challenge: spending no more than $2 each day for their food for the whole business week! A challenge and a half, this initiative is extremely worthwhile, raising funds and awareness for the one billion plus individuals living below the poverty line worldwide.

Having participated in this challenge four times now, embarking on my fifth as I type, I honestly cannot recommend this initiative any more. This is an experience that will change you, modify your perspective on poverty and Western society dramatically.
