Ben Affleck: Poverty Challenge is not a Stunt

ben_affleck_619758 Although some people might be skeptical, Ben Affleck denies his participation in the Live Below the Line campaign is just a celebrity stunt. He says that he truly believes in the project and its importance.  ”Some accuse it of making the issue of extreme poverty into little more than celebrity Twister. It is also true that celebrities often promote (knowing or unknowingly) lifestyles that price out all but the richest Americans. The issue is not that we should feel guilty about owning cars and Xboxes; taking vacations or buying fancy shoes. It’s that we should understand that we have a responsibility as a country to be good global citizens,” Ben said.
