Why?

9 Apr

Why did I choose to participate in Live Below the Line?

Because I want to bring awareness to the people around me.

Because no one should go hungry at night.

Because we produce enough food to fill all the bellies in the world.

Because I want this problem to not exist.

Hunger, we all feel it at one point. Most of us have the ability to go into the refrigerator or pantry and make something to eat. The other part of the population does not have that ability.

Most people see the problems that are happening, we watch the news, read a newspaper… War, political problems, celebrity gossip. That is all we hear or read about every single day. One we seldom read about or hear on the news is hunger, poverty, no clean drinking water. Human beings fighting to live and not starve. A good portion of the human population lives off of $1.50 a day and that’s not just food, that’s everything. Those are the current events out there that we choose to ignore, we choose to close our eyes and cast aside.

I may not have a job and a weekly income, but I have food to eat, clothes on my back and a roof over my head. And that is why I have decided to take a week to Live Below The Line.
