This piece from Morra originally appeared in the Huffington Post. You can read the post in its entirety here. You can support TML's Live Below the Line fundraising team here -- every $250 raised will provide 1,000 school lunches to children living in extreme poverty. The inequality of wealth and poverty in the world is extremely apparent when it comes to one of our most basic needs: food. Could you live on just $1.50 per day? For the 1.4 billion people who live in the most extreme poverty -- what the World Bank calculates to be the equivalent of $1.50 USD per day -- this is reality.

Next week, I'm going to join Ben Affleck, Hunter Biden, and other fantastic luminaries in trying to go five days eating on $1.50 a day.
