You've seen the memes and the Facebook posts about toilet paper running low. Sometimes you can't even find it in stores. Now, a company is working to help with a new website called .

The crowd sourced websites allows people to report which stores have either a surplus, limited supply or no toilet paper on the shelves. The site's founders, Nick Bembenek and Andrew Burnett, need the community to help. They're asking people in cities across the country to report supplies at their local stores. The hope is that next time someone needs toilet paper, they won't have to try multiple stores.
