Have you heard of The Global Poverty Project? They’ve issued a challenge to live on $1.50 worth of food a day for five days, which is the budget for the over 1.4 billion living in poverty worldwide. It’s shocking and seemingly impossible to imagine or accomplish without much suffering. Even more so when I remember that it’s not a challenge and an actual reality for a whole lot of people.


There’s a video about the five-day challenge here. Would you ever take the dare? I don’t know if I could stick with it.
