If you’d like a hand with your school’s 2-Day Live Below the Line challenge, we’d love to help. Get in touch with Murray at murray@tearfund.org.nz

HOW IT WORKS

The money you raise will enable Tearfund’s partners to work in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities to empower people to help themselves.

Through Self Help Groups and Farming Co-operatives, we’re harnessing the Power of Together to see families lift themselves out of poverty. Together we are stronger. Together we are more. Join us!

WHAT ARE THE RULES?

YOU HAVE $2.85 PER DAY 

That's right! $2.85 for all of your food and drink. You don’t need to factor tap water into this – it’s counted as ‘free’ – so remember to drink as much as possible to stay hydrated!

JUST SAY NO... THANK YOU 

We know they do it because they care, but if your friend or a well-meaning adult offers you ‘free’ food during your challenge, resist! Encourage them to sponsor you instead.

ONLY COUNT WHAT YOU USE. 

For example, if you purchase a bag of rice from the supermarket, but only use one cup of it during the challenge, only count the price of one cup’s worth in your budget.
