Live Below the Line Challenge
By Amy McMillen, Partnerships and Outreach Coordinator, Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

From April 28-May 2, join us in spending $1.50 a day on food and beverage for five days to change the way people think about extreme poverty – all while supporting The Hunger Project’s work in villages worldwide.

Thousands of people around the world are taking the Live Below the Line challenge to raise funds and awareness for the 1.2 billion people in our world who live in extreme poverty. The Hunger Project is partnering with this campaign in the U.S. and the U.K.

We need you to be our ambassadors! Sign up for the Live Below the Line challenge and invite your friends and family to support your efforts by investing in The Hunger Project!

The Live Below the Line site allows you to create your own page to ask for donations, form teams and create a workplace network for your company. Plus, it has a blog feature for you to share your thoughts, and gives you tons of tips for raising funds via social media as well as recipe ideas and more! Find out more.

In 2013, with 21,000 participants, Live Below the Line raised over $4.4 million globally, and gained support from celebrities, influencers, students, mothers, communities of faith, and world leaders.
