30 days on $30

By   /   October 4, 2011  /   3 Comments

LONDON (WordNews.org) Sept. 3, 2011 — Nathan Adair is conducting an experiment.
He wants to know what it’s like to be poor.
“When you’re really hungry, 25-cent canned soup tastes like it came from a five-star restaurant,” he says.
Adair is 10 days into what he’s calling a 30-days-on-$30-fast.
He says he wants to identify with more than 1 billion people who live on $1 a day.
Adair is also hoping to raise awareness and money for a micro enterprise project that will use solar energy to power an orphanage in India.

Adair reports that the first four days of his 30-day experiment were the most difficult.
“A combination of eating approximately 35 percent of the calories normally consumed and giving up caffeine made for a miserable beginning,” he acknowledged; “However, the overwhelming support and prayer from my wife, family and friends gave me the resolve I needed to press on and not give up.”
