Fame and frugality are concepts not often associated with one another. Celebrities aren’t only known for their wild spending habits, they’re often applauded for them. But now, one Oscar-winning star is taking the challenge to live on less in order to raise money for and awareness of global poverty.

Ben Affleck has signed on to take the Live Below the Line Challenge, a five-day event where participants agree to spend a maximum of $1.50 a day on food and hydration. They also solicit donations which are then funneled to one of a handful of poverty-focused charities.

This year's challenge will run from April 29-May 3.

Affleck's five days will be dedicated to raising money for his own Eastern Congo Initiative, a U.S.-based nonprofit that provides economic and social development opportunities for the people of that African region.
