who gives a crap

There are a lot of products you can buy online and get delivered to your door. Sometimes they are things you don't need but a bit of late night webshopping sucks you in and the next thing you know you are hanging out for the postman to knock twice. Occasionally though there is a product that makes you feel good about dropping some money on Paypal.
Simon Griffiths and his mates have worked on this project and it's a beauty. You order toilet paper and 50% of the profits goes to developing toilets in developing countries, which means lower rates of sickness and better living conditions. Watch the video, groan at the puns, transfer some money over.
Simon spent 50 hours sitting on a toilet to get the ball rolling (so to speak) and the first goal of $50,000 was reached overnight. You can still participate, the more start up money the bigger and better things will be.

  1. I'm new to the blog-thing, but I just started one of my own. I like your spot, I quilt too and you've got some nice work there... Good luck w/ putting it all together. I knit and crochet too, I have to have some kind of outlet or I think I'll go mad. :) If you have any suggestions about blogging, I'm all "ears".
