Purple potty reappears

PURPLE potty is out and about this spring.

The purple potty has returned to appear at various places around town.

Conceived last year by Kids for a Cause, a group of young teens who raise money for the Terrace Relay for Life, the colourful symbol will factor in the attempt to raise $10,000 this year.

The idea is to raise “awareness about flushing out cancer and receiving donations to move it to another recipient’s house,” indicates information received about the group.

In its first year in 2009 the group raised $1,300 and last year $7,400.

The group formed in 2008 as a way to support a friend who was diagnosed with leukemia and to support the Canadian Cancer Society.

Recent efforts include making cupcakes which are then sold in groups of six Fridays and Saturdays at Don Diego’s. The restaurant is also a team sponsor for Cause for Kids in this year’s relay which takes place next month.
