One in Five
One in five children lives in poverty. For thousands of families, basic needs like shelter, food, water, clean clothes, and hygiene items can be hard to come by.
But what if we told you that in just 2 minutes and one donation, you could help provide all of these things to thousands of people?
Wichita’s Boldest, Brightest Fundraiser Yet
Send a painted toilet to the front yard of anyone you choose and be part of the movement to flush away poverty in Wichita. You read that right, a toilet—a bright, bold, beautiful toilet. What happens next is up to the recipient—will they send it back to you? To someone else? Of course, we could also remove it…for a small donation.
Why a Toilet?
Besides being the ultimate symbol of basic needs, these coveted yard accessories will be impossible to ignore as they pop up all over the city. The result—a movement of empathy for the 61,000 people living in poverty in Wichita.
Send a Toilet
Send a full-sized toilet for $100 and fund an entire week’s stay in our Emergency Winter Shelter. Or send a planter-sized toilet (complete with succulent) to someone’s home or desk for $50 and fund a two-night stay off the streets.
