Live Below the Line: Day 2 Breakfast

Morning all, and welcome to me attempting to walk a mile in somebody else’s shoes in order to raise awareness of global poverty for Live Below the Line. It’s breakfast time again and I’m nearly ready to head off to work for the day. I’ve got my packed lunch of tuna sweetcorn pasta leftover from yesterday and we’ll see how I feel when I get home.

In case you’ve missed The Preparations, I am living off under £1 a day to try and get some idea of what it is like to live below the extreme poverty line. Obviously I have it easy as I have a roof over my head, and I can pay my bills and buy shampoo still, so this challenge is only a taster. However, it certainly is thought provoking for me and if it is for you then why not sponsor me?
