    Celebs will eat on only $1.50 per day.

    Hollywood stars are among the world's biggest earners and it's admirable when they make significant adjustments to their lives to help others.

    Ben Affleck, Josh Grobin, and Sophia Bush have pledged to eat and drink only a dollar fifty’s worth a day, beginning April 29th.

    They’re supporting the Live Below the Line Initiative, an organization that brings awareness to world poverty and its devastating effects.

    Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, is also participating in the campaign.

    870 million people in the world live without sufficient food.

    The Chairman of World Food Program USA emphasized how much of a difference a meal can make.

    He said, "I've seen firsthand how school feeding can change the life of a child in my travels to places like the Dadaab refugee camp in Kenya. At just 25 cents a meal, school meals have the power to break the cycle of hunger, giving children the chance to learn, grow and a reach their full potential."

    In past years Hugh Jackman, Minka Kelly, and Nick Lachey have participated in the program.
