If there is one thing that everyone should know about me, it’s that I hate poor people. What I mean is that I hate how some people are stuck being poor so that other psychos can stay wealthy. Also, I’m obsessed with charities that involve celebrities. So when one of my “smart” friends told me about the Live Below The Line Challenge over drinks at the Beverly Hills Hotel last week, I was intrigued. It’s basically the most amazing idea ever. The goal is to spend less than $1.50/day on your food. You’re supposed to do it for 5 days, but I’m loving it so much I think I’m gonna do it for at least a month.
Here are the details:
1. Spend 5 days feeding yourself with $1.50 a day which is the U.S. equivalent of the extreme poverty line.
2. You’ll be bringing a ton of awareness to the 1.4 billion people currently living in extreme poverty and helping to make real change.
3. Although it sounds impossible to eat nothing but three sprigs of greens per meal per day, the challenge will give you an opportunity to cut back on your calories. So when you’re done with it, you’ll feel great about your karma levels, and your look will have a new shine and glow. It’s a win win. Win for the poor people, win for you.
Also, this is a UNICEF program and David Beckham is a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador, so you really shouldn’t need any other reasons to join in on the cause. I should have just called this post “Be More Like David Beckham” and I’m sure you all would’ve been totally stoked. It’s a no brainer. My suggestion is that you buy $7.50 worth of beet greens and split it up into 5 equal parts. One part for each day. My gay boyfriend/gay dad, Hugh Jackman, and I both really want you to join us in this amazing act of charity. You’ll be thanking me in 5 days when your arms look like Angelina’s and you’ll be thinking of me in 5-10 years when you die and make it to heaven because you were an active citizen for positive change . BYE!
