My challenge

In 2019 I participated in the Live below the line challenge, along with my ATAR health class. Together we ate on $2 a day for 5 days to experience poverty and fundraise to support poverty alleviation projects in Cambodia and Timor-Leste. 

This year Oaktree has reimagined the LBTL challenge and I have been inspired to participate again. 
Participants have the option to choose, out of 5 action areas, which line/s of poverty they wish to tackle during this challenge. Technology, Shelter, Food, Waste or Energy. 

So how do I imagine ‘Living below the line?’ 
I have decided that I’d like to try incorporate each of the lines into my challenge with a focus on Food and waste. 
Like before, I will be eating on $2 a day for 5 days as this represents the extreme poverty line. As well as this, I will be doing smaller challenges to incorporate the other areas.
This will hopefully include: 
- helping out at my local community garden
- water bucket showers for 5 days
- avoiding single use plastics 
- Hosting a clean up day (or multiple!)
- donating old devices for recycling 
- donating my extra mobile data
- giving up T.V, Netflix, Spotify, Tiktok and Snapchat for as long as I can 
- using social media (Instagram and Facebook) to advocate 
- giving up furniture and bedding for 5 days 
- donating to a homeless shelter 

I will be posting updates to my Instagram regarding all the details about my challenge and how I’m going. I’d love for you to follow along! @Rubymorris_ 

I'm Living Below the Line in 2022...

Because I am acting for people and planet.

I believe in empowering young people in leading, demanding and creating positive social change. By donating to my page, you will help support Oaktree’s partners and programs to empower young people in the fight against poverty and injustices, close to home and in the Asia-Pacific.
