Our Campaign Story

ends 10 Jul 2022, 11:59 PM

Over the past week, I've tried to live with $21.66/day to better understand my relationship with money. Having never tracked my expenses before, this proved to be difficult, adjusting from my previously flippant and extravagant-ish lifestyle. I chose the number 21.66 because the average per capita income of a low income family is about $650, and that amount usually included money spent on rent, utilities and other miscellaneous fees besides food and transport.
Through the week, I have maintained my budget on 5 out of 7 days, only bursting it twice because of attending a wedding and a day where I needed to take Grab.
This week has taught me a lot more about my privilege, so I hope to use my platform to help raise funds for underprivileged families, particularly to help them provide meals.
I hope you can help meet the fundraising goal! There are many more people that need this help. Or if not start your own spending challenge and maybe you'd find enlightenment and have a better relationship with your money. Have a good one!
