OxFam at ASU held its annual $2 Challenge, where students spent the school week living off of just $2 a day. These challenges are held around the country and are meant to bring awareness to students about global poverty issues. It was held this year on ASU's Tempe Campus at Hayden Lawn from April 3 through April 7. More than a dozen students participated in the challenge, and about half of them stayed in the cardboard shelter every night of the week.
