What is Live Below the Line ? from a Bzz Agent.


What is Live Below the Line ? What Have I Gotten Myself Into? Live Below the Line is an campaign that challenges individuals and communities to eat and drink on £1 per day for 5 days. By exposing participants to a glimpse of some the daily difficulties experienced by the 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty every day, for everything, the campaign provides a unique window into understanding the realities of life for so many. Through the insights gained over the 5 days, Live Below the Line is assembling a movement of people passionate about making a difference in the lives of those who desperately need it. Through partnerships with various charities, the campaign raises both awareness and fundraising. If you don’t think you can live off £1 a day yourself, pass on the information and the Live Below the Line website to friends and family who you think will be up for it.

Why I’m taking the challenge

 

I’m supporting MRDFUk-mrdf

They exist to bring about significant and long-term change in some of the world’s most marginalised communities, and to empower people to change structures that are oppressive and unjust. To achieve this we work in partnership to support long-term development projects, provide humanitarian aid in disaster situations and campaign against the causes of poverty. We work on the basis of greatest need regardless of religion or race.

In today’s world, extreme poverty and inequality are unjustifiable and unfair. Live Below the Line demonstrates the problem in a concrete way, while raising money to address the problem. Support me as I live below the line by donating now – your generous support will go towards fighting extreme poverty.

Suggested Foods and Recipes

Plenty of Options

Sure, you’re not going to be eating steak tartare or exquisite veggie pizzas this week, but with a little creativity you can whip up some tasty meals. Now, you probably won’t be seeing these in Gordon Ramsay‘s next cookbook, but they’ll get you through the week.

Pasta with Shredded Onions, Carrots and Garlic:
1 package of bow-tie pasta
1 teaspoon salt
3 carrots
1 teaspoon pepper
1 onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup canola oil

Peel the onion and finely chop. Peel the carrots and chop into half-inch long sections. Separate half a cup of canola oil and heat over high flame. Put onions into the oiled pan. After a minute, add chopped carrots. Let cook in covered pan until carrots are soft. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Cook pasta until al dente. Once pasta is cooked, add the other half cup of canola oil until pasta is coated. Add carrot and onion mix. Add garlic powder to taste.
