Hugh Jackman has teamed up with Live Below the Line, a poverty awareness and fundraising campaign, to encourage people around the world to experience what it’s like to live in extreme poverty. For one week, your goal is to survive on only $1.50/per day.

“It gives people a chance to hav an awareness and understanding of what it’s like for 1.4 billion people on the planet, who live on or under $1.25/day in what’s described as extreme poverty,” he says in an interview with the AP.

Jackman says that if you can’t swing the whole $1.50/day thing, you could also make some kind of symbolic gesture as a way of recognizing the campaign – like riding a bike instead of taking a car. He plans on going without coffee, sugar, and his computer.
