Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) is just one of many celebrities and thousands of people around the world who’s backing and taking part in “Live Below the Line,” a campaign run by the Global Poverty Project. The idea of said campaign is to raise awareness of poverty by living off of “$1.50 of food and drink for one to five days.” The challenge will run between the dates of April 28 to May 2.
ARTISTdirect describes the campaign as such:
Live Below the Line is an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that aims to spark dialogue about current victories in poverty reduction and engage people to empathize with the 1.2 billion people living in extreme poverty. It is an initiative of the Global Poverty Project, an advocacy and campaign organization, whose mission is to increase the number and effectiveness of people taking action to end extreme poverty by 2030.”
Last year, “with 21,000 participants, Live Below the Line raised over $4.4 million globally, and gained support from celebrities, influencers, students, mothers, communities of faith, and world leaders.”
In the past, the campaign has seen the support of various famous faces such as Tom Hiddleston, Hugh Jackman, and Ben Affleck. This year, Wright will be joined by Bridget Moynahan, Deborra-Lee Furness, Rachel Brosnahan, Jamie Geller, Hunter Biden, and Tamzin Merchant.
