JOIN US FOR A FUNDRED-MAKING EVENT @ SAMS├śN or make your own from home.

Be a part of the Fundred Dollar Bill Project, an artistic project connecting and collecting the voices of 3 million youths across the country. By creating interpretations of $100 dollar bills, students will support the clean-up of lead-contaminated soil in New Orleans. In April, the special Fundred Sous Terre armored truck will take Massachusetts Fundreds to Washington D.C. will be here to pick up our Fundreds!!! Participate now. Make a Fundred Make a Difference!

How it works:

Individuals draw their own Fundred Dollar Bills --- original, hand-drawn interpretations of US $100 bills --- which we will deliver to Washington DC. Your Fundreds will be picked up by a special armored truck and presented to US Congress with a request for real funding to make safe lead polluted soil in New Orleans.

Participation is fun, simple, and free!
