Visitors to the Charmin Restrooms in New York this holiday season experienced a special celebrity charity treat. Patrons of the toilets were able to use special toilet seats designed by celebrities such as country singer Martina McBride, comedian Mario Cantone, actor Mario Lopez and actress Sherri Shepherd.
For every visitor to the Charmin Restrooms between December 17 and December 31, Charmin donated one dollar to the celebrity’s charity of choice, including Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Boys' and Girls' Clubs of America, loveisrespect – National Teen Dating Abuse Helpline, The Harlem Children's Zone, and Angels in Waiting.
“I was thrilled to unveil the five specially-designed toilet seat covers today, including my own,” said Mario Cantone. “This is such a creative way to raise money for charity during the holiday season, and I had a lot of fun bringing my own vision to life!”
“The holidays are a time to give back,” said Jacques Hagopian, brand manager for Charmin. “We’re happy to not only provide an incredible bathroom experience where tourists and local New Yorkers can ‘enjoy the go,’ but also give them the chance to help others when they visit.”
