This month I’ll be donating 10% of profits from my art sold to Water for People, in tandem with the ‘Give a Shit’ campaign!
The designers over at GOOD found out that more people in the world have mobile phones than toilets. They wanted to change that, so they designed a fun and interactive mobile tool so that people can take action on their phones to help provide health and sanitation to everyone, regardless of where they live.
Because 2.5 billion people in the world—one out of every three people on the planet—don’t have access to a toilet. The consequences of that are deadly serious. 1.4 million children die every year from contact with raw human feces—that averages out to one child every 20 seconds, more than die from AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis yearly combined. Human shit contains hundreds of pathogens that are harmful to humans, including E. coli and salmonella, and is a significant factor in spreading infectious disease.

Give a Shit donations go to Water for People, an organization that works to get everyone in the world access to a safe water system and a place to poo! Gotta love it 🙂
