767 million of our fellow human beings live below the international poverty line, surviving on less than $2.85 a day. These past five days I have restricted my meals to fit within this budget, a mere fraction of the equation for those whose cents have to cover fuel, medicines and healthcare. The rumbling stomach and lack of coffee would all be worth it if it can make even a small difference in the lives of these people. We don't see them everyday, but they are real people living real lives needing real help. Please support me in donating to Tearfund's Empower work - because giving opportunities for education and business development are huge for helping people overcome the isolation and pain of poverty.
$9 connects a family in the Philippines with an irrigation system.
$25 trains a farmer in dairying in Sri Lanka.
$105 establishes a self-help group in the Philippines - an amazing community resource.
Go on, together let's change lives!
I've signed up to Live Below the Line because together, we can make a real difference against global poverty. I'm inspired by the work of Tearfund and wanted to support them by raising money as part of my five-day challenge.
Please help me help them by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. The more people that know about LBL, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot! Together, we're helping enable vulnerable families around the world to help themselves out of poverty.
