Ben Affleck Takes Poverty Vow to Eat on $1.50 a Day

Oscar-winning director and actor Ben Affleck has joined the Global Poverty Project’s 'Live Below the Line' project, which challenges people to live on just $1.50 per day for five days.

'Live Below the Line' is trying to raise awareness about the 1.4 billion people in the world who live in extreme poverty.

Living on $1.50 a day equals a budget of $547.5 for one year, reported Entertainment Weekly.

Affleck announced his intentions on Twitter and linked to Below the Line's website: "1.4 billion people live on less than $1.50/day. I’m joining Live #BelowTheLine on behalf of @easterncongo. Will you?"

Actor Hugh Jackman recorded a video (below) to promote 'Live Below the Line' in 2012.

In addition to Affleck, Josh Groban and Tom Hiddleston are also going to live below the line for a week.
