Can we live on £1 a day for seven days?
Well, that’s what we’ll be trying to do this week! JCI Southampton is taking part with Jaycees from all over the country in JCI UK Pound A Day Challenge 2017.
What’s JCI UK Pound A Day Challenge?
This project is in aid of ‘Save The Children’, a charity that helps to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger around the world, and by so doing, helps to tackle the first two of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals (SDG #1 and SDG #2) in the process.
Save The Children operate worldwide in developing countries, as well as right here in the United Kingdom.
Participants commit to spend up to £7 a week for the challenge. The difference between their weekly food budget and the £7 will be donated to Save The Children via JCI UK Just Giving Page
To see how the challenge’s going nationally, follow #jciukpoundaday on social media and discover how JCI Southampton members and other Jaycees are coping.
