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.
