The quote above is a true reflection of my current experience of Live Below the Line. At first, I joined up to this as a charity event trying to raise money for people living below the line all around the world. But as the week is going by, my views are changing.
Live Below the Line believe “fiercely in the potential of young people, and they are working hard to help them have a real impact on the things that matter to them.” So for us here in Australia, it means that we have the “chance to campaign for extreme poverty” and to raise the public awareness about it. Overseas in Cambodia, Timor-Leste and Papua New Guinea, our campaigning helps young people to “create opportunities for themselves.”
This means that Live Below the line is not only necessarily about raising money but also about raising awareness about poverty and trying to create change.
And thankfully there are many ways that you can help out
Firstly, you could spread awareness about this issue and get as many people as you can involved in helping to make a meaningful impact. This could be friends, family or even random people you have conversations with. Below is the link for the Live Below the Line page where you can learn more.
You could also donate to my page to help with the fundraising.
Lastly you could get involved in LBTL next year and help to continue the impact LBTL is having.
