Live Below the Line 2013

Posted by unicefsocial on Apr 22, 2013 4:32 pm

As some of you may have heard, Live Below the Line begins a week from today. The challenge - living on no more than $1.50 of food per day, for 5 days - will give a glimpse into the lives of 1.4 billion people who have no choice but to live below the extreme poverty line. It's a great opporunity to fundraise for one of your favorite charities (like UNICEF) and raise awareness of global poverty.

If you're taking the challenge, please use this space to share your experience, coordinate teams, trade recipes and support each other!

If you'd like to know more about Live Below the Line, check out our LBL Webinar this Wednesday, April 24 at 8 p.m. EST.

I'll be living below the line for the first time next week. I've never attemtped anything like this before, but I'll be doing my research this week and making sure I'm fully prepared.

I Lived Below the Line last year for the first time. It is a challenge but it also really makes one think about how we take so much for granted, and how we can make a difference in the lives of others when we take purposeful action. Thanks for posting this thread to get everyone thinking about the challenge - and good luck next week to all that are participating!

I made the Hearty Lentil Stew from the Live Below the Line cookbook and it is healthy, colorful and delicious. It is a part of my prep- as I am choosing not to spend ANY money on food and beverage this week, but only use food from home and my hearty lentil stew to last the remainder of the week. This is a progressive step for me this week.... I wish LBL were a little bit longer! Go UNICEF USA Live Below the Line teams!
