Watch for a purple toilet landing in a yard near you.

That Walking Warriors Relay for Life team is “Flushing away Cancer” with a purple toilet fundraiser.

If you find a purple toilet in your yard you have a few options, you can have it removed for $10, have it placed in a yard of your choice for $25, or buy Toilet protection insurance for $30 this keeps your yard free of commodes.
