What a wonderful question? A deliberate living below the line challenge to me and simply put is deferred gratification for the betterment of humanity. This can be exemplified in diverse ways. But the bottom line is frugality such as what one has failed to consumed like a spend drift is what one has saved and what one has saved definitely becomes what one has invested.Investing in lives of persons that are hungry, in pains and tribulations at times like this as we can all see around the world, the Middle East in particular should appeal to our sentiments as one family of humanity.Your daughter has invested in the lives of a people which is a moral responsibility and as such all and sundry should do the same.
Thanks, Valentine. I'm of two minds because I worry that this kind of challenge can sometimes lead the general public to think they understand what it is actually like to have to cope with extreme poverty year in and year out. But at the same time, I agree with your points about deferred gratification and frugality. My daughter is also a vegan, which is another way to help the world live more frugally to protect the planet for the future. And I love that she chose to support the UN's work with refugees, who are unfortunately becoming more and more numerous as the number of people displaced by humanitarian disasters increases.
Extreme poverty situation is real, hunger is real, I have watched and see refugees suffer it. It is not a figment of imagination. Humanitarian support should continue unabated and workers with passion should as well increase on an exponential curve. Bravo to refugee workers in the Middle-East and the world at large.
