I am so proud to be a Grobanite. With Josh's inspiration, I created Team Grobies Living Below the Line. I was brought to tears as I watched the donations come in. Several people did the challenge of living on $1.50 a day for 5 days. Not an easy task! Some did one day, some did the full 5 days. There are so many out there living in their cars or sleeping on the ground, not knowing where their next meal is coming from. We found out that many of our Grobies live below the poverty line. This is something that is very hard to admit. People don't understand and are not aware of the hunger all around us. That is what this challenge was all about.

Our team held the #5 position on the leaderboards and raised a total of $3540 by the end of the campaign May 31, 2012.

Josh Groban's fans are amazing people. Sure we have our disagreements. Nobody's perfect, we don't always say the right things, sometimes we just don't understand. But when there is a need we pull together and make big things happen. Thank you Grobies for being there and for making a difference in the lives of so many. You guys ROCK! I am so grateful that I found Josh's music and that music led me to you. My life, and I'm sure the lives of many others, is so much better for that.
