We Give a Crap

Poo~Pourri is a small, woman-owned business that recognizes the incredible contributions that women make to our local and global communities. We believe all women should have a voice, the opportunity to succeed, and a safe environment to grow, pursue their dreams, and bare their genius. That is why Poo~Pourri supports programs around the world that help women secure an education and protect them from violence. Join us in turning crappy into happy through support of the organizations below.

LOTUS OUTREACH INTERNATIONAL: GATE Scholarship Program

When girls in poor, rural, Cambodian villages reach 11 or 12 years-old, they have few paths to choose from. Their primary choices are to become a child bride, or cross into Thailand where they’re promised jobs as nannies or servers, only to be sold into brothels. That is why Lotus Outreach International, provides $1,200 scholarships to these girls that cover all costs for a year of school. For International Women’s Day, Poo~Pourri is donating 100% of website sales from March 3 – 5 to Lotus Outreach International with a goal of $30,000, enough to send 25 girls to school.

WORLD TOILET ORGANIZATION: Rainbow Toilet Program

2.4 billion people are struggling to stay well, keep their children alive and work their way to a better future—all for the want of a toilet. Clean and safe toilets help prevent child deaths from diarrheal disease, and keep more girls in school by increasing attendance rates. We believe that everyone should have access to a nice, safe place to go. That is why Poo~Pourri partnered with the World Toilet Organization, donating $50,000 on World Toilet Day to help them build “Rainbow Toilets” for school kids who don’t currently have access to safe and sanitary plumbing.

NATIONAL COALITION AGAINST DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

Domestic violence is an issue that’s close to our hearts, as Poo~Pourri’s Founder and CEO, Suzy Batiz, is a survivor of domestic abuse. Per the NCADV website, 1 in 3 women have been a recipient of physical violence by an intimate partner within their lifetime. To support these survivors, Poo~Pourri recently donated over $30,000 dollars the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCADV).
