If you wake up to or come home to a pink toilet in your front yard, just go with it. It is a major element in the fundraising project by Seneca Trail Animal Hospital’s Katie Walters.
The Pink Potty fundraiser is the brainchild of Walters. As manager of the project, Walters is joining the movement for October as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. She is also honoring her friend Rebecca Moore, a breast cancer survivor.
Walters says the project is going better than she had hoped for after two weeks and hopes to do it again next year.
Basically, if you find yourself in possession of one of the two donated pink toilets, you have three options. Firstly, you may pay $10 and have the potty removed. Secondly, you may pay $15 and have the potty removed and placed in another yard. Thirdly, you may pay $20 and have the potty removed, placed in another yard and ensure that the potty won’t return to your yard.
So far, everyone is enjoying the fundraiser and supporting the cause.
Neathawks donated one of the toilets, and Dr. Dowdy from Seneca Trail Animal Hospital donated the other.
After the fundraiser is over, the Mountain Messenger will report the final tally of funds raised from this year’s inaugural Pink Potty. To reach the Pink Potty Patrol, call 304-645-1700.
