Could you live off £1 per day?

Live Below The line There are 1.4 billion, yes billion, people currently living in extreme poverty on less than £1 per day. This figure was defined by the World Bank as $1.25 US dollars a day, in 2005.

Live Below The Line is an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign which urges people to experience what it’s like to live on £1 per day for food, for 5 days.

I’m not even sure how I could live on that and I’m dreading trying but I think it would be a pretty intense challenge. So from w/c 3rd June I’m going to try to live of £1 (for food) for 5 days and see what happens. I’ll tweet my thoughts using #belowtheline anyone want to join me for support!?
