MTV Wants You to "Give a Shit" with Their New "Charity" This Foul-Mouthed Charity Doesn't Want Your Money

August 11, 2011

Talking shit gets attention. That's the premise of several fundraising efforts including World Toilet Day, which aims to raise awareness about sanitation issues around the world. Now, a new "charity" called Give-a-Shit is using scatological shock value to get young people to care about, well, anything, without actually caring. 

The site explains: 

Well, we’re not offended by bad language. We’re offended by billions of people dying from lack of clean water. We’re offended by the rainforest being devastated by human greed. We’re offended by famine in Africa. So if we have to talk shit, then that’s what we’ll do.
