On August 8, the first day of folk fest, Trish Kushniruk stepped into a small blue room and hurled her less-than-a-year-old iPhone 5 through the black ring of hungry toilet seat and down into a blue lagoon of used liquor and digested food...
...Of course, that’s not how she’d tell the story.

Hers is a tale of precaution and planning. How she carefully placed the 7.6 millimeter thick device onto the soft snowy white toilet paper far, far away from the wretched pit. How, once she’d done her business, and with great trepidation, she put all of her garments in order and cautiously placed the 112 gram device into her back pocket with the brilliant 4-inch (diagonal) widescreen Multi-Touch retina display facing in (to avoid scratches). But how, even with all her precautions, the evil porta potty reached out (somehow), with its greedy hinges and locks, pulled the LTE enabled iPhone out of that pocket, bounced it from edge to lid to rim until finally, with horror on her face, Trish was forced to watch her connection to the world be consumed.

And then, with sadness and dismay, she was taunted. Looking down into that disgusted pit she could see the bubbles, she knew exactly where the phone was, but just as clearly she understood what was between the two of them.
She made a choice, folks, a choice that you too would have made were you character of this tale. But, just because you weren’t there doesn’t mean you can’t still be Trish’s hero.

Your donation will earn you two things

1) You’ll be overcome with a sense of joy from helping a wonderful person like Trish get a new iPhone 5.

2) You’ll earn the right to bug Trish (within reason) about the fact that she let an inanimate object fall down a stationary hole of fixed size after only half a beer.

A toonie, a fiver, half of your month’s salary – give what you can.
