Poverty Practice


Actually I found that I can!

Just this past week, I was running on just a little below 50 pesos a day (excluding the free meals from office, and miscellaneous expenses at home.) This is the first time that I’ve gone that low in everyday expenses. Basically because I live fairly near to my office, and that meals are free why I survived. But imagine all those people who have kids and have no job — how do they live in such a low budget? It’s inhumane.

It is inhumane to ponder about it, but it is happening. I like this awareness campaign and it made me realize how blessed I am — having a job that does not only pays the rent, and heck, free meals to boot!

How about you? Can you live below the poverty line for a week?

P.S. I am really pondering on making this a month-long challenge.

He works in digital advertising but this blog is not about his job. Jonver overshares about his travels, boy dreams, and existentiality on his little space in the world wide web. He finds drunk tweeting amusing - all the more because he's funnier that way.

He likes to believe that his name is so unique he feels confident to ask you to search his name instead of giving his social media handles.
