Ever felt dumped on? Well, we sure did when an unexpected porcelain delivery arrived in our front yard Friday evening. We had been "s-potted" by our church's Youth Group with an Ugly Toilet.
Crazy prank by the Youth Group? Well, yes and no. The Ugly Toilet is actually a fundraiser to help raise funds for a neighborhood family who lost their entire home in a tragic fire.
Here's how it works. For a donation of $10, you can have the Ugly Toilet placed in the yard of your neighbor or friend. In order for that neighbor or friend to have the Ugly Toilet removed, they must pay a $5 removal fee, or they can donate $10 to have the toilet removed AND delivered to another yard. For $15, you can purchase "potty insurance" to ensure that this Ugly Toilet will NOT show up in your yard ever again! However, I've been told that the "potty insurance" don't mean crap.
This fundraiser has proven to be very successful so far! We have about 9 ugly toilets in circulation around town, each one hand painted and decorated by members of the youth group. It's a great way for the community to recognize our church AND fantastic Youth Leader!!
