It is the time of the toadstools. They are springing up overnight in many Perry yards,and many of the familiar fungi are an inoffensive shade of white.
But a more colorful sort of stool is also making its appearance in Perry yards: a purple stool that travels from yard to yard. It is the Flushing Out Cancer traveling purple toilet, a source of fundraiser fund for the Relay for Life of Northern Dallas County.
The jewel-encrusted and flower-bedecked commodes have now been seen adorning the local landscaping of several of our neighbors’ yards for a few days.
They are easy to plant in your neighbor’s yard. The Flushing Out Cancer policies are simple: Homeowners who find the purple commode has grown overnight in the yard can have it hauled away in exchange for a $10 donation to the Relay for Life.
For an additional $10, the lucky lawn ornament owner can have the purple porcelain removed from her yard and placed in the yard of of some one of her friends.
Insurance against the purple pot can be had for $30. To flush a friend, contact Relay organizers Gary Iles at 515-360-4686 or Tammy Wallace at 515-201-1033.
All proceeds from the purple program support the Relay for Life of Northern Dallas County, which celebrates the lives of cancer victims and survivors and funds cancer research.
The American Cancer Society, which sponsors the Relay for Life, estimates there will be about 1.7 million new cancer cases diagnosed in 2016 and about 600,000 cancer deaths in the U.S.
