Information Paragraph to Use to Spread the Word
"With the support of Whole Planet Foundation, four US college students spent the summer of 2010 shooting a documentary in Guatemala to demonstrate the reality of living on less than one dollar a day. In order to gain this understanding, they conducted research on how the rural poor manage their money. In a creatively youthful way, they did their research by working alongside their neighbors, conducting interviews, and creating financial diaries, all the while subsisting on less than one dollar a day themselves. The goals of this film are twofold. First, to increase awareness about how access to reliable financial services, such as microfinance, can help the poor. Second, to raise $100,000 dollars for Grameen Guatemala and Fonkoze in Haiti, whose borrowers have been recently devastated by natural disasters. If you are interested or would like to make a donation, please follow their story and show your support at www.livingonone.org."
