'Wipe for Water':10-year-old's fundraiser for drinking fountains

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:34 pm on 19 February 2021

Ten-year-old Lilah McDonald of Auckland tells Jesse about her fundraising idea to sell toilet paper to buy drinking fountains for New Zealand's parks and playgrounds.

The idea was sparked after Lilah noticed the lack of drinking fountains and bottle filling stations around Auckland compared with those overseas.
