Givesom's 1.25 social good diet aims to strike a happy balance between people starving for food and the fact that in some parts of the world, it's fashionable to be on a diet.

The 1.25 Diet has participants pick one day of the week to join the 1.25 Diet plan, where you'd spend no more than $1.25 on food to give you a taste of what billions of people go through on a daily basis. With the money that you've saved on food, Givesom urges people to donate. As Givesom puts it: "Why not take advantage of this and let our vanity feed their mouths?" As shocking as the stunt is, it's a worthy reminder to put yourself in the shoes of someone else every once in a while.
