It’s crude, I know. But it makes a funny point about a not so funny situation.
Yes. #WorldToiletDay is a thing. This is the THIRD year. I wrote about it in 2013. Read my post on the First World Toilet Day if you dare. There’s a singing toilet. Just sayin’.
But it’s really not funny. One in THREE people don’t have a sanitary place to go to the bathroom, or access to a potty. That’s 2.3 BILLION people, according to WaterAid.
Where there are no toilets, people die. Clean water and sanitary conditions keep people healthy. Where there are poor sanitary conditions, people get sick.
This is a preventable problem.
This year, you can create your own poop emoji. Seriously. Do it here: make your own poop emoji today at www.giveashit.info. I challenge you to #GiveAShit.
For starters, I encourage you to hop on over to the WaterAid site and read this informative post: Seven Things You Probably Didn’t Know About the State of the World’s Toilets.
Oh, and make your #GiveAShit emoji. And show people! 🙂
