In an effort to raise awareness for 2.5 billion homeless people that lack access to private toilets, nonprofit Lava Mae coordinated a public art installation aptly called "C'mon, Give a Sh_t!"on the streets of San Francisco for World Toilet Day (Nov. 19). Lava Mae, which offers a mobile bathroom experience for the homeless, later auctioned the toilets to benefit partner initiatives in the city.
