Sneak Peek: Why These Celebs Spent Just $1.50 on Their Daily Meals

Here’s a sneak preview of my interview with Hugh Evans, the young co-founder and CEO of The Global Poverty Project. Tens of thousands of people worldwide, including Ben Affleck, Dr. Jill Biden and Hunter Biden, just completed its five-day campaign “Live Below the Line.” They spent just $1.50 per day for meals. That amount is the U.S. equivalent of what it means to live in extreme poverty. And for 1.2 billion people around the world, that’s how little they have, not only for food, but for all the necessities of daily life.

Watch this space for more of our interview, and a full episode on the issue of extreme poverty, posting this Thursday.

    Pacquiao plans if Mayweather says no

    Filipino boxing star Manny Pacquiao has a plan in place if yet another bid to fight Floyd Mayweather fails -- a May 30 bout, possibly against England's Amir Khan. Pacquiao promoter Bob Arum told ESPN that a backup plan if a hoped-for May 2 blockbuster against unbeaten US star Mayweather falls through is a fight four weeks later in Las Vegas, New York, London or Abu Dhabi. "A lot of places around the world want to host a Manny Pacquiao fight," Arum said. Arum also told ESPN that Khan, a former welterweight champion, is the leading candidate, although Khan would also be a top contender to fight Mayweather if Pacquiao is not his choice.
