THE STORY:

Dear friends, family and concerned citizens. As my birthday approaches, I asked you to please consider a contribution to this amazing cause: GIVING WATER. This charity thinks BIG and intends for maximum improvement to the human condition on the planet. It's focus is one that is largely ignored because of the nature of the challenge they will solve. Join me, celebrate with me and make the world a better place! Lots of LOVE!

The War on Poop is an ugly one. Nearly 40% of the world—2.5billion people—do not have access to sanitation and hygiene. In the time it has taken you to read this, a child has died because of poor sanitation. In the past 10 years, diarrhea has killed more children than all the people lost to armed conflict since World War II, mostly due to unsafe water, inadequate sanitation, or insufficient hygiene. 90% of all deaths caused by diarrheal diseases are children under 5 years of age in developing countries. We’re here to change the scoop on poop. We believe that every child should live past their first birthday, every person should have clean water to drink, and that 100% of humanity should have access to improved sanitation and good hygiene. Clean water, improved sanitation, and hygiene are basic human rights—together we can make sure those rights are given to everyone.

To fight the War on Poop, Toilet Hackers is doing three things. We’re enlisting a community of leaders and builders to hack the sanitation problem through perpetual creative disruption—what we call our sanitation hackathon. We’re also launching a grassroots advocacy campaign to raise awareness about the world’s toilet crisis. Lastly, we’re enlisting you. Our mission is urgent. Our cause is noble. With the support of friends far and wide we can deploy dignity, we can get to the finish line, and we can win the War on Poop.

Toilet Hackers is a not-for-profit joint program of Giving Water, a 501(c)3 charity and Eirene, a for-purpose LLC, and is operated entirely by volunteers!
