Living below the line

overcoming fear of the blank page
Hello friends, family, lovers, ex-lovers, enemies, travel buddies, pen pals, homos, straighties, in-betweenies, colleagues, comrades and people I met in a bar just once but we hit it off really well and exchanged email addresses and then never stayed in touch (until now),

I’m going to be living below the poverty line. Yep I’ll be surviving on $2 a day, eating just rice and beetles – Bear Grylls style! And no beer!!

You may know that I’m studying my Masters in Social Development. My main interest is sanitation and trying to change the fact that 1 billion people currently can’t take a crap without contaminating their water supply. Not. Cool.

You can help educate young people about the effects of extreme poverty. Just sponsor little old me! Any little bit helps – $5 is awesome, $20 is awesomer, anything more is totally the awesomest.

For everyone for whom I’ve ever cooked, kicked out of my kitchen, presided over the bbq, brought a plate; for all those people I’ve shared a meal with, or those who have generously shared their food with me… please support this program and wish me luck and lots of carbs!
