Now, I know I'm cynical...but I just have to comment on this.

There is a scholarship where in order for a chance to win you do stuff over a number of days.  So I was reading through what the other days were because of course by the time I find it, it's almost over.  But I found this gem...which frankly kind of angers me:

"Day 3: Poverty and Homelessness
Task 1: Live below the line. Spend 1.50 or less today. Send in photos of what you used your money for."

Um...I guess I'll send you a photo of air?  

The fundamental problem with this task is that it implies that most people have to buy something every single day of their lives.  Perhaps I'll spend $1.50 on gas.  I mean, seriously.  If you are truly living below the line, how about starting a Monday you don't buy anything until Friday and you can "pretend" you are waiting for pay day.

Who are these people that are buying things every day of their lives.  I mean surely, even if you have money, there's at least one day of the week (if not several) where you're like "know what, I'm going stay in and surf the web..and eat what's at the house"  And if you were really living "Below the line" I guess you'd read a book instead cause you don't have the internet and eat ramen you got from the food pantry.
