The average person spends 10-15 minutes on the toilet a day – that’s almost 8 hours a month! Imagine if we spent that time learning something new?
This November, we’re inviting Australians to dedicate their toilet time to learning a new skill. Memorise, meditate, or master your way through the month to raise money for people who still don’t have access to a decent dunny.

Hold your own event for WaterAid
Do you have your own great fundraising idea? Perhaps you would like to host a yoga class, bake muffins, drink only tap water for 30 days, accept donations in lieu of birthday or wedding gifts, or ride from France to China by bike.
However you choose to fundraise, it’s easy to create an online fundraising supporter page and share it with your friends, family and colleagues.
School and community group fundraising
Schools, churches and community groups can have lots of fun fundraising for WaterAid. Everything from a dress blue day to a movie night, a barbeque or trivia night. We can provide you with posters, stickers for fundraising tins, and publications about WaterAid’s work. You may also like to look at some of our downloadable resources and activities below.
If you’re based in Melbourne you can also collect and borrow one of our banners for the day.
