An alternative to the toilet brush that makes toilet cleaning less disgusting is a good cause in its own right – but buying your Shiffter will also help others.
Filthy brushes and dirty toilet bowls aren’t exactly topics we rush to discuss. Similarly, most of us are reluctant to discuss stomach and bowel related problems. Colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, Crohns disease, painful constipation, colon cancer, stomach cancer and general abdominal pain are topics we avoid discussing, but we all know someone whose lifestyle has been seriously affected by such conditions. We’re keen to support clean water and sanitation projects in developing countries too.
When you buy your Shiffter, a big chunk of the money we make will be donated to related good causes such as research, charities, nursing, care, counselling and sanitation. There are over 365 million households in the US and Europe alone and around a billion worldwide, so there’s potential to raise a great deal of money for them. On top of that, many of them have more than one bathroom and we’re also going to sell to hotels and businesses.
What do we mean by “a big chunk of the money we make will be donated to good causes”?
Put simply we’re hoping that it will be between 10 and 20% of what we make after we take out the running costs such as making your Shiffter, selling costs, wages, packaging and distribution – otherwise we wouldn’t be able to run the business…and we’ll make sure that no accounting trickery is used to reduce how much we donate. There’s no small print, it might take a year or two to get there but that’s the plan – and that’s a promise!
If all goes well, we’re hoping to raise many thousands of pounds (or whatever your currency) for good causes.
