Colorful commode is a hot commodity in Londonderry fundraiser

But don't call the code enforcement officer just yet. It's all for a worthy cause.
Last week, members of One Body of Hope, a Relay for Life team based out of St. Jude Parish in Londonderry, began their mission of "wiping out cancer" one lawn at a time.
"We went and picked up the toilet on (a recent) Friday," Roberts said. "The next day, we were outside painting it. Painting porcelain isn't too easy," she said with a laugh.
By the time Sunday Mass rolled around, parishioners caught a glimpse of the colorful commode gracing the church garden as they made their way into the sanctuary.
For a $15 fee, the toilet can be placed on the Londonderry lawn of one's choice.
"This chain of events should keep the toilet moving around town, thus raising awareness of the need to flush out funds towards a cure for cancer," Woodward said.
Johnson, who wasn't told who had paid to have a potty placed on her front lawn, found humor in her lawn's latest deposit.
"Someone really loves you," Woodward said.
Would Johnson be "flushing" it forward? But of course, she said.
"I do have a friend who made me promise not to send her any flamingos," Johnson said. "But she didn't say anything about toilets."
