A big thank you to Citrus Center Kiwanis for your investment of $500 and to Lakeland Optimist Club for contributing $200 to our campaign! Can you believe we are almost at 90% of our goal? I am thrilled to share a few recent pictures of our project! If you have been considering an investment in our project- make today the day!!
Demolition Day! Yeah!!!
Is that a toilet I see!!
We are over $26,000! 86.9% of goal! Please help us make this happen for the young ladies at the Boys & Girls Club!
A big shout out to Boys & Girls Club Board Members Heather Blubaugh and Crystal Prine! Investments from both of them put our total at $24,821- that is 82% of our goal. I can hear the girls cheering in the distance, "I think I can, I think I can." Our club members have been selling custom toilet paper and lollipops to help with costs. What a great lesson this is for them- see the need, make a plan, do it! To thank Heather and Crystal I share this inspirational photo.
How can I thank my friend Monti Sommer? A poem? A joke? A photo? I think a philanthropic toilet fact...Not busy on November 19? Celebrate International Toilet Day! The holiday was created to bring awareness to the 2.5 billion people who face improper sanitation daily. Hey Monti- your invited to the club on November 19. We'll have a party to celebrate our new restrooms and remind our kids that they are blessed to have a community behind them. Not every kid is so lucky!
70 more days until summer program starts. We are in crunch time to get these restroom done. Please consider an investment today!
With a $100 private donation I will go to bed tonight with a smile, knowing our girls are much closer to having their needs met. Thank you to our newest LATRINE LOVER! To thank you and other sports fans I share this photo...custom toilet seats are available in your favorite team too. I wonder though, if its a toilet seat- would you want it to be of your least favorite team?
Thank you to Tammy Dutton. Tammy is a former club staff member and remains a friend of our kids. We are thankful for you Tammy. In honor of your donation I am going to go "high brow" and share a risqué poem. Here goes: Roses are red, and have thorns that can cut. So don't ever use them, to wipe your bare butt! Keep that in mind everyone. Thank you Tammy.
AND.....our annonymous donor puts us at $24,441! Thank you so much Donor A! Will all of our followers in Facebook land please consider promoting our campaign in any way you see fit...share with a friend, highlight on your wall, make a toilet your profile picture. :) Any help is ssoo appreciated. In recognition of Donor A I would like to share this photo of my daughter, and user of our current single stall restroom. Happy Sunday everyone!
What!?! 81% of our goal has been met! When did that happen? Oh yeah, it was when Jim Hall and Richard Grant joined the ROYAL FLUSH CLUB at $1,000 each! We were joking in the office today about how great it will be to see three pairs of feet poking out from underneath multiple stalls. Can't Wait! In honor of Richard and Jims investment...I am proud to reveal the second arm of the campaign...toilet paper sales! $2 each or 3 for $5- available at any of our four locations! Check out the photo. Arnt they cute? VERY BIG thank you to Richard & Jim!
THANK YOU William Carney and Sanford Marks! In honor of your support I'm going to get right to the "good stuff"...your reward, it is not trivia, or a video, or a photo...but something more useful...A PRANK! 1)Take a ketchup packet & fold it in 1/2. 2)Tape the ketchup packet to the top of the rim & under the seat. 3)When someone sits down on the toilet seat BANG! Man oh man, I hope none of our Boys & Girls Club boys are reading this! A very sincere thank you again to Mr. Carney and Mr. Marks! Who will be next?
THANK YOU Russ & Betsy Sklenicka. The Sklenicka's are "2-Ply Providers!" That is another $500 to the campaign. We are at 74.47% of our goal. As we inch closer to our goal, summer creeps closer as well. If you have been considering a donation to the campaign NOW is the time. NO OUTSIDE POTTIES for the girls this summer! ...it has a nice ring to it. Enjoy this joke in honor of Russ and Betsy: (From the movie Jurassic Park) Why can't you hear a Pterodactyl going to the bathroom? BECAUSE THE P IS SILENT. Now thats a good one!
Clearly nobody wants me to sleep tonight- not from busy work but from excitement! Kevin and Tina Kidd just increased their investment to $100 becoming LATRINE LOVERS! Pppeeess accept my most sincere thank you! You two are poo-fect in my eyes! In recognition of your contribution I share this revolting fact: The average kitchen chopping board has 200% more bacteria on it than the average toilet seat. GROSS!
Thank you so much to Kevin & Tina Kidd! You guys represent a handful of out of town donors, donors who likely will not benefit directly from our project. Your investment holds a special place in my heart. Might sound dramatic- but it's true. Kevin & Tina, part of my Boys & Girls Club family, on behalf of our girls- thanks a million! This songs for you!
Thank you very much Mr. Dewey! Your investment puts the campaign at 72.47% of our goal. Who knew this...the film "Psycho" was the first movie to show a toilet flushing- the scene caused an outpouring of complaints about indecency. This fact is shared in honor of Mr. Dewey's contribution- thank you! Please share the Girls need to PEE too campaign with your friends!
A double thank you...Tony Fridovich, a $500 investment in this important campaign and AEI Electrical Construction, Inc. have committed to all electrical work ; in-kind! Yeah! Awesome! Thank you! A double thank you requires double the toilet facts. 1)The White House has 30 bathrooms. 2)The Pentagon uses about 636 toilet paper rolls per day. Whoa! That's a lot of TP and 29 more restrooms than our girls have...but not for long!!!!
Thank you Kathleen Yule for your help in solving our "toilet trouble." Your support is appreciated and will be honored with the sharing of this little known toilet fact...only 7% of homes in Afghanistan have flushing toilets. 19% however have television sets. Interesting!
Thank you to a private donor for yesterdays investment of $100! Did you see the article in the paper about our "potty problem?" We are so close to reaching our goal. Please consider supporting this project today...And enjoy the attached link to the Seinfeld episode where the lady "Can't spare a square!"
Approximately 65 days until the start of the Boys & Girls Club summer program. The Girls Need to Pee Too campaign has met 70.35% of the $30,000 goal! Please consider supporting this project today! Porta-Potties for our girls-all summer long...no thank you!
A big thank you shout out to Kristin for your investment in the "potty campaign." In honor of your investment I share this valuable information: Toilets are flushed more times during the Super Bowl halftime than any time during the year. I too would choose the restroom over Beyonce. Just over 70 days until summer. Who else will help make sure these girls are not using porta potties again?
Today was a BIG day! Thank you Mullens Corporation, Gerber Plumbing & SAMCO Plumbing. Together these companies donated:
4- 21-975 bowls
4- 28-980 tanks
1- 12-314 wall hung lav
3- 12-834 CH drop in lavs
4- C4-44-412 faucets and very valuable
labor costs & expertise!
As far as I can tell, all those #'s are "toilet talk" for AWESOME! In honor of this much appreciated support I share this: Urine on the toilet seat- although disgusting, is a nearly sterile liquid.
Labor costs, permitting and other misc. expenses remain. Please consider making an investment in www.gofundme.com/girlspeetoo
A big thank you to Jennifer Wolfe! Your investment in our much needed project is sssooo appreciated! Did you know that most toilets flush in the key of E Flat? Odd but true. Thank you again Jennifer!
Thank you very much to our recent anonymous donor. Your support is appreciated so much. For your gift I would like to share this fact: Green Bay, WI produces more toilet paper than anywhere else in the world. I could speculate on why that is- but I won't. Thank you to all donors. Have you shared the link? Www.gofundme.com/girlspeetoo
Thank you Kacy for your investment. You are the first person whose donation I would like to honor by trying my best to make you throw-up...it was bound to happen in a restroom campaign. Here's my best shot: Advice in one book suggests that a person exit a public restroom stall immediately after flushing, since "fecal matter" can fly twenty feet into the ait when flushed. GROSS! Thank you Kacy! Current total $1,060. 3.5% of the goal!
$1,035!! WhooHoo! Thank you Brad & Annalise! Your investment brings us to an awesome milestone...the first $1,000! To celebrate I send you well wishes in regards to the potty training that lies ahead of you. I hope this doesnt happen at your house. :) Thank you so much! Celebration!!
Thank you Jodie! ANOTHER out of state donor! Our girls appreciate your investment! As a thank you please enjoy this unfortunate and suprising fact: CAR STEERING WHEELS CARRY MORE THAN TWICE AS MANY GERMS AS A TOILET SEAT...boy, that'll get ya thinkin'. Thank you Jodie!
Thank you Paul Billy! Paul is one of 4 donors who don't even live in Florida. I think that is so generous. Thank you Paul for your contribution to the "pot" to buy a "pot!" :) Do you think the campaign will reach $1,000 tonight?
Thank you John Doran! $100 in the right direction. If you are following the campaign you know each investment is celebrated! John, as a thank you to you I share this interesting toilet related fact- Over $100,000 was spent on a study to determine whether most people put their toilet paper on the holder with the flap in front or behind; the answer: 3 out of 4 people have the flap in the front. ***At my house I'd just be happy to have it on the roll**** Please share our campaign with your friends.
We are almost at $700! Thank you Rex for making our first contribution of the day. To show my appreciation I'll share this interesting fact: While he didn't invent the toilet, Thomas Crapper perfected the siphon flush system we use today.
Oh Janice! To celebrate a $500 gift I had to dig deep into my arsenal of toilet humor. Thank you so very much and please enjoy this selection: Brittany (age 5) asked her Granny how old she was. Granny replied she was so old she could not remember any more. Brittany said "If you don't remember you must look in the back of your panties. Mine say five to six."
Thank you Jay! Having spent many years at the Musso Club you know how much this project is needed. In honor of your investment I am going to post a few less common words for toilet...Bano, outhouse, the head, the throne, the crapper, the loo, the can, the potty...what other (appropriate) ones am I missing? Thank you JAY!
To my recent Anonymous Donor: I hope you enjoy this.
A little three year old boy is sitting on the toilet. His mother thinks that he has been in there too long, so she goes in to see what's up. The little boy is sitting on the toilet reading a book. But about every 10 seconds or so, he puts the book down, grips onto the toilet seat with his left hand and hits himself on top of the head with his right hand.
His mother says, "Billy, are you all right? You've been in here for a while."
Billy says, "I'm fine, Mommy, I just haven't gone 'doody' yet."
His mother says, "Ok, you can stay here a few more minutes. But, Billy, why are you hitting yourself on the head?"
BILLY SAYS: "WORKS FOR KETCHUP."
Fascinating Fact: The first toilet ever seen on TV in the USA was on Leave it To Beaver!
Bernie Vatter for all you doodoo- this jokes for you...Q: How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper? A: I don't know. Its never been done! :) Thank you!
$25 closer to our porcelain THRONE. Thank you Kerrie KING! ...that one barely tested my creativity. :)
Thank you sssooo much Annette. You are our #2 giver...which in this campaign #2 is a POOfect place to be!
The funlanthropy begins! Thank you to Crystal-the first donor to GIRLS NEED TO PEE too!
