Live Below the Line Challenge
Live Below the Line is a fundraising campaign that helps Australians take action on poverty. It is a challenge that sparks thousands of conversations about poverty and Oaktree’s work across Australia.
Oaktree started Live Below the Line in 2010 as a way of enabling Australians to engage with the issue of poverty and to take meaningful action on it.
Since then, over 50,000 Australians have raised more than $10 million for education and campaigning initiatives that help fight poverty. This year, thousands of participants will be putting change on the menu by feeding themselves on $2 a day for five days. That’s the Australian equivalent of the extreme poverty line.
By taking the Live Below the Line challenge, you’re raising much-needed funds for work that helps end poverty. Live Below the Line is all about creative cooking, rationing and caffeine deprivation: it’s just a glimpse into what life is like for people in poverty, not a real experience of it. But Oaktree’s fundraising has a real impact.
