In May each year, Oaktree, one of Australia’s largest youth-run organisations, run the Live Below the Line campaign.

This campaign is a fundraiser to bring the topic of poverty to the forefront of conversations. The equivalent of the extreme poverty line in Australia is $2 a day!

Participants in this fundraising campaign feed themselves for only $2 per day for 5 consecutive days, whilst raising funds and gaining an understanding of what it feels like for those who are less fortunate.

Jasmine, step-daughter of Lynn & Brown’s Jacqueline Brown, participated in this fundraiser. Jasmine has this to say of her experience.

“The experience was humbling and helped me understand what those experiencing poverty go through.”

The funds raised through this campaign goes towards working to help end poverty. For more information about Live Below the Line and Oaktree, visit their websites:
