This May, the decision of almost ten thousand people worldwide to Live Below the Line helped capture the public’s imagination, and focus it on the issue of extreme poverty.
The passionate advocacy and shoestring budgeting of thousands of Australians, Americans and Brits helped to engage hundreds of thousands of people around the world with the issue of extreme poverty; raising over a million dollars worldwide to help fund crucial anti-poverty initiatives, and highlighting the impossible choices faced by 1.4 billion people every day.
The stories and experiences of Live Below the Line participants have lit fires in the hearts of friends, family and colleagues in thousands of communities. Now, as we all settle back into the rhythm of everyday life, we need to make sure we keep those fires burning.
That’s why for the next month we’re encouraging our supporters to continue the conversation started by Live Below the Line, by booking a presentation of 1.4 Billion Reasons for your community.
The 1.4 Billion Reasons presentation explains the incredible progress that has been made in the fight against extreme poverty; and the way that our simple, everyday actions can ensure a better future for the 1.4 billion people who currently live in extreme poverty. Developed in consultation with experts from across the globe, it breaks down the facts of extreme poverty, and explains why and how we can see an end to it within a generation.
During Live Below the Line we put extreme poverty at the centre of dinner tables around the country, and laid the foundations for something incredible.
If you’d like to build on these foundations by getting your community involved in the global movement to create change, we encourage you to book a presentation of 1.4 Billion Reasons for your community, to show them how their simple actions can create change.
