World Toilet Day | November 19, 2009

Artists get Involved - Scoop Brancisco supports World Toilet Day

Why World Toilet Day?

Because 2.5 billion people worldwide are without access to proper sanitation, which risks their health, strips their dignity, and kills 1.8 million people, mostly children, a year.

Because even the world's wealthiest people still have toilet problems - from unhygienic public toilets to sewage disposal that destroys our waterways.

I happen to know someone who devotes her life to improving that situation, in Australia and now in India. We can't all do that but we can do this, it's just one day, once a year!
