The 1.25 Diet

The 1.25 Diet is a way to support the 1 billion people who live on less than $1.25 a day. You simply pick a day where you restrict yourself to consume food for 1.25 and donate the rest of the money you would have regularly spent to someone in need.

“In the developing world people are starving. More than a billion people live on less than $1.25 a day. Meanwhile in privileged countries it’s fashionable to be on a diet. Is that what you would call irony? Well, here’s the latest one…The 1.25 Diet. But unlike other diets, this one can make a difference.For real.Not just for the one person losing a couple of pounds, but for the 1 billion people who live below the poverty line. Take a moment and ask yourself a question…How much do you spend a day on food? $20? $40?  Whatever the answer is, pick a day to participate in the diet, simply by consuming food for no more than $1.25. You’ll experience these people’s every day reality. And discover how hard it is to manage. But maybe most importantly…All the money you save that day, you donate to those in need.”

Looks like I’ll be going on a diet folks! Join me?
