This Entrepreneur Is Raising $1K an Hour By Sitting on the Toilet The TOMS of Toilet Paper Is Sitting on the John 'Till He Gets $50K

There's no shortage of need when it comes to bathrooms: 2.6 billion people currently live without access to adequate sanitation. The lack of toilets and bad hand washing habits cause 6.3 percent of all deaths worldwide according to the U.S. CDC

There's also (sadly?) no shortage of potty puns out there for the do-gooders trying to help. The best known effort is probably World Toilet Day, which organized the Big Squat in 2010. They now have the "Toilet Paper," a.k.a. research. There's also the People's Own Organic Power project (get it?). They have the "Eat Sh!t" fundraising event declaring "brown is the new black."    

Now there's a business joining these cheeky charities. Simon Griffiths is an entrepreneur and co-founder of Good Goods. He's "sitting down for what [he] believes in."
