Drums for Toilets  
Did You Know
• Every 2 minutes, a child under 5 dies from diarrhea
• More than half of world's population lives without safely managed sanitation
• Without proper sanitation, girls often miss school when menstruating
• Without a safe toilet to use, some women and girls face sexual assault when relieving themselves

November 19, 2013, was the United Nations' first World Toilet Day.
It was also the first annual Drums for Toilets, a benefit concert which raises funds to build latrines in sub-Saharan Africa through the nonprofit organization Blood:Water.
In recent years, your donations have primarily funded latrines at schools.
