Help by the Fundreds

Two days from now, an armored truck on its way to Washington, D.C., stops in Kansas City to collect fundred dollar bills. That’s not a typo. Fundred is correct — it’s a hand-drawn denomination invented by a group that ultimately seeks to raise real hundred-dollar bills to help inner-city New Orleans children affected by elevated levels of lead in their blood. Chameleon Arts and Youth Development is helping out with the national campaign by hosting a Fundred Drawing and Collection Drive, beginning with a Fundred Kickoff Party from 6 to 9 tonight at the Leedy-Voulkos Art Center (2012 Baltimore). The generous can donate their fundreds and hundreds during that event. Download and print a fundred to color in and contribute at fundred.org.
