'Flush Out Cancer': Rebecca Szabo-Silfies Leaving Purple Toilets On Lawns To Support Charity

Posted: Updated:

EASTON, Pa. — A northeastern Pennsylvania woman is using purple toilets to raise money to fight cancer.

The Express-Times reports ( ) Rebecca Szabo-Silfies and her two young sons have been leaving the commodes on lawns around Upper Nazareth Township as part of the "Flush Out Cancer" effort. She chairs Saturday's American Cancer Society Relay for Life event at Nazareth Area High School.

She stakes out a home, leaves a toilet and then waits for the homeowner to find it. The person can then pay $10 to have it taken away, $20 to send it to a friend or $30 to send it to a friend and guarantee it never comes back.

The two purple toilets have made 18 stops so far, raising $400. Szabo-Silfies says she found the idea on the Internet.
