Living Below the Line

This spring 25,000 people worldwide (including myself!) took the challenge to eat and drink on $1.75 a day for 5 days! We are lived Below the Line so others can rise above it. The initiative was set to raise $4.4 million for the world’s leading anti-poverty organizations.

Name that Band!

So, back to the music again. Sorry I must seem to go on and on about this but it is a passion and I can't help it.
