    Default Ben Affleck to live on $1.50 a day

    Ben Affleck to live on $1.50 a day
    April 23, 2013, 9:59 AM
    .Oscar winner Ben Affleck is joining in the effort to promote the Live Below the Line poverty-awareness and fundraising campaign, according to published reports.


    Getty ImagesBen AffleckThe anti-poverty campaign challenges those who sign up to live on $1.50 a day for food and drink for five days.

    The figure is derived from the World Bank’s definition of extreme poverty. About 1.4 billion of the world’s 7 billion people live on less than $1.50 a day, according to the charity’s website.

    Newark Mayor Cory Booker made political hay out of his week on a similar program last fall in a not-so-subtle dig at Chris Christie, the state’s obese governor. Booker lived on $4 a day, the equivalent of an individual food-stamp allocation.

    The Live Below the Line campaign runs from Monday, April 29, through Friday, May 3.

    Yeah, but having the gazillion dollar pad to go home to at night makes a difference

    I dunno. Trash him all you want, but he doesn't have to do this, and I think it's pretty cool that he is. Is LeAnn, Beyonce, Gwyneth or Laura Poon doing anything like this? No. I say good for him for doing it.

    Anything that brings attention to an important issue is a worthy endeavor and good for all of them that can do it! I know that if I tried: a) it wouldn't bring the attention and b) I couldn't do it!

    I was seriously thinking about this and I would just eat ramen all week. I could mix it up with chicken, beef, shrimp, etc.

    So that's about $45 per day. That's going to be rough as $1.50 doesn't even cover bus fare for most people that have to work...jfc, we could try something a little more realistic because I don't see how he's magically going to only live off $45 per month. No electricity? Is he camping out? Foraging?
