Hi Friends!

Last December I asked my mom what she wanted for Christmas and she told me she would like an outdoor toilet to be bought for a family/village in Asia. I didn't get around to making a campaign at that point, so I'm aiming for her birthday which is May 20th!

Some little-known facts about the toilet:

1. More people in India own a mobile phone than own a toilet.
2. It has saved more lives than any other invention.
3. Billions in the world still don’t have one.
4. A family without one is exposed to millions of viruses, bacteria and parasites each day.
5. If everyone in the world had access to one, about 2.4 million deaths per year could be prevented.

Toilets. Are. Great. And I could use your help in providing one for a family!

If you would like to a give a gift towards this toilet in honour of my mom, you can give on this campaign or send a cheque to the GFA Canadian office.

Thank you!
Jessica

Note: The goal I set is $320, enough for two toilets. So even reaching $160 would be great. :)

About Outdoor Toilets

2.6 billion people don't have access to even a basic toilet. This leads to bad public sanitation and increases the risk of diarrhea, cholera, typhoid, trachoma and parasitic worms. Further, many people refrain from drinking liquids and suffer from dehydration to avoid the difficulty of going to the bathroom.

For every $160 raised, GFA can build an outdoor toilet that provides a safe, clean, and free way for men, women, and children to use the restroom.

  • Families are given a sanitary place to use the restroom, which leads to better sanitation and public health.
  • Women are freed from gender-discrimination and sexual abuse while using the restroom.
  • Children have a safe place to use the bathroom and avoid diseases like diarrhea—the second biggest killer of children under 5.
