Sitting on a toilet isn't the best way to get things done now is it?  But it was the perfect way for Simon Griffiths to raise $50,000 for his commendable charitable project.

The Australian is a man on a mission - he's planning to solve a big part of the world's sanitation problem by building toilets where they're needed the most. He started his big plan by spending two days sitting on a toilet bowl with his pants around his ankles.

He's travelled to places where toilets aren't what you're used and by sitting on a bowl for 50 straight hours he tried to attract attention and funds to a worthy cause.

His 'Who Gives a Crap' campaign is aimed at raising funds for toilets in third world countries where over 4,000 children under the age of five die of diarrhoea-related diseases every day. It's a grim statistic, but Simon hopes his effort will be the unlikely start to a very serious change. Australia - July 2012 Supplied by
