The Rich Earn This Much Money While Going Number 2. Here’s Why We All Should Give A Crap
Bill Gates makes $249,435 every time he goes No. 2. Well, that’s according to the team at Rehab Studio.
In order to raise awareness about the importance of World Toilet Day, the technology company launched Give A Crap — a website that provides the “guestimated crap value” of 200 of the world’s most influential entertainers, business leaders and athletes. The site encourages viewers to tweet at the change-makers using the #GiveACrap hashtag in order to garner support for the cause.
Rehab Studio found the figures by calculating data on the individuals’ net worths, a 5 percent interest rate and the “average crap time.”
The website puts a lighthearted spin on a day that highlights a dire global situation. According to the United Nations, approximately 2.5 billion people around the world do not have access to improved sanitation. But the consequences have an impact on everyone.
Poonam Khetrapal Singh, Southeast Asia (SEARO) regional director for the World Health Organization, told The Jakarta Post that a lack of proper sanitation systems has played a major role in the spread of Ebola in West Africa.
