Back in May I posted about Live Below The Line, a great initiative to raise money for extreme poverty. Well, the good folk at LBL want me to tell you how things went. An excerpt from their email:
In May this year, you
supported something a little left of centre.
“Jessica is living on $2 a
day? That’s crazy...” – you might have thought. And yes, you were kind of
right, Live Below the line is tough challenge!
But here’s the thing -- your
support, in the end, made a real difference.
Along with 52,324 other
Australians, you helped spread the word that while poverty can seem
overwhelming, it can be ended.
And your support
helped spark a movement. Together, 7812 Live Below the Lin-ers across
Australia raised over $1.9 million to help provide an education to those who
need it most. You made this impact happen.
A video of the impact:
Well done to all those who participated and to the donors.
