Salt Lake City, UT – What it's like to live on six dollars a day? That's for food, gas, toothpaste, health care - everything! That's how much you'd have - as a single person - if you lived at the federal poverty level. To bring awareness to National Community Action Month, two volunteers from a local anti-poverty group gave up their credit cards to live a life of poverty for three weeks. KUER's Jenny Brundin followed their blogs and their ups and downs over the three weeks.
