Painted Potty Project

 

Simply Smiles Needs Our Help! Due to unhealthy management of human waste, hookworms live and grow in the abdomens of 75% of the inhabitants of Oaxaca, Mexico.  The condition is painful, impairs cognitive development, impacts nutrition, and can be fatal.  Treatment has been provided but the worms come back.

 

Fortunately, there is a solution!  The Simply Smiles organization is providing needed medication and is working with the Oaxaca locals to build basic pit latrines and hand-washing stations.  The use of these facilities is paramount to eradicating infection among the 3,000+ inhabitants.  Proper sanitation practices will have a truly measurable, sustainable, and life-changing impact on thousands of lives. Visit SimplySmiles.org to learn more about this Connecticut-based non-profit organization.    

 

How can you help? You can participate in the Chester Rotary Painted Potty Project by creating an original piece of “toilet seat” art. Entries must feature a toilet seat, be “family-friendly” and reflect the spirit of “Simply Smiles.”  Your artwork will be on display at the Maple and Main Gallery in Chester from August 16 –31st. Selected entries will be auctioned off at the first ever Potty Party to be held at the Chester Meeting House on August 31st.  There will be lots of family fun and laughter as the community works together to support a good cause! All proceeds from this event will support Simply Smiles sanitation initiatives.
