Fundred Dollar Bill Project.

So I was asked to be a part of the Fundred Dollar Bill project and it feels good to be doing my part even if it's a little part, to make a big difference. And I feel that everyone should take a little time to check out what the project is about and participate. I have put a brief description of the project below, but you can go to for more information on it and print out a template if you want to participate. So take a minute and check it out.

"Everyone and anyone, students, teachers, artists, parents and celebrities, are all making their own Fundred Dollar Bills–original, hand-drawn interpretations of U.S. $100 bills. The goal is to collect over 3 million of these unique artworks. This cumulative total of 300,000,000 Fundred Dollars supports the equivalent cost (in U.S. Dollars) required to make safe every lead contaminated property in New Orleans, so that every child is protected.
These valuable drawings will be picked up by a special armored truck and presented to the U.S. Congress with a request for an even exchange of the creative capital–your Fundreds–for real funding to make safe lead-polluted soils in New Orleans. Once we create a lead-safe New Orleans, this innovative environmental model will be available to other lead-polluted cites."
