It's been a super busy 2 months and I haven't been able to blog as much as I would have liked to, I have a growing pile of drafts lined up waiting to be edited and published that I will get to as soon as possible but here is a recap of one of the highlights of my past two months - my LIVE BELOW THE LINE challenge.
A challenge whereby you live (in terms of food and drink) at the poverty line (1.34€ I worked out in euros) for 5 days to help raise awareness and raise money towards providing sustainable change to those in poverty through, education. The ultimate key to breaking the poverty cycle. It is through education, that young generations will be able to lift their nations out of poverty and this is exactly what this campaign is about - empowering those in poverty so they can help themselves.
I started off with a goal of $100, and before I knew it, friends and family and anonymous donors all over the world had collectively donated well over $2500 - CRAZY!! With 5 days left before the campaign closes on June 30th, I am sitting at number 15 (tied with another fellow Aussie Live Below the Liner) with a grand total of $2591 raised out of 11 358 Australians taking part in the challenge.
