If you’ve ever heard Matt Damon in a candid interview, you know that his entire fortune would end up in the swear jar, if he had one. Thankfully, he’s putting his potty mouth to good use to bring attention to World Toilet Day.

What’s World Toilet Day? It’s an annual event designed to bring attention to the fact that 2.5 billion people lack adequate sanitation. That by itself doesn’t sound too bad. It’s just roughing it, right? Wrong. Not having proper sanitation is one of the biggest causes of infection in the world, and can even cause death.

Damon’s organization Water.org has teamed up with the Gates Foundation, Acumen and ONE to bring attention to the serious issue. It’s happening on November 19th and because we’re talking toilets, of course a bit of humor is brought into it.

Damon says in this short video, “More people have a mobile phone than a toilet. Let’s cut the sh*t.”

Watch the clip below, and find out how you can get involved to bring life saving toilets to the world.
