Yesterday Hugh Jackman hosted a benefit for Live Below the Line, an initiative that sees people going for a week on less than $2 a day. In a new video he talks more about how the program helps raise awareness about extreme poverty, when participants realise how much they have to go without when their budget is limited to such a tiny amount (that doesn’t even cover the price of a coffee!). And even if you’re not officially taking part during the week of 16-20 May, Hugh says there are many ways people can make small sacrifices, just by giving up anything that you usually take for granted, even if it’s only for a day. See what else Hugh has to say about the campaign, as well as what he’ll be giving up, in the clip.
