Simple-ish Living

5 Day Challenge

why i'm "living" below the line

I realise how lucky I am and while this challenge is only for 5 days and only in regards to food, I know it will be an eye-opening experience.

Accepting this challenge does not mean that I will be "living" below the line in a real-world type way - I'll still have access to clean water, working plumbing and shelter. But I hope this will help me understand the importance of a dollar

You'll see me create 3 meals a day for 5 days under $10. This is not a low waste challenge, I'm fully aware that bulk foods stores where I live are not cheaper.

Things I'll be including in the challenge but not in the $10: tap water, salt and pepper

If you can support those in need by donating that will be great :)

I'm Living Below the Line...

Because I believe in a world where education is a human right, but also the best way of empowering people so they can raise themselves out of poverty. I believe in the capacity of young people to be able to make a difference in the world. Live Below the Line will give me a small glimpse into what life can be like with limited choices and through fundraising I hope to play my part in helping end poverty. Please either join me in doing Live Below the Line or Dine Below the Line or donate to me today!
