Fundred Dollar Bill Project

Fundred Logo

Join the Model Lead-Safe City Program and the City of Elizabeth in raising awareness of childhood lead poisoning with this creative educational tool.  The Fundred Dollar Bill Project (www.fundred.org) seeks to raise $300,000,000 in Fundred Dollar Bills to present to our US Representatives in an effort that the representatives match the Fundred Dollar Bills with real funds to remediate lead hazards.  The $300,000,000 represents the amount needed to remediate the lead in soil in New Orleans. 

Sample Fundred Dollar Bill

We are pleased join the Fundered Dollar Bill Project and will be collecting Fundred Dollar Bills on behalf of our Model Cities.  If you have any questions about the project or how you can participate, please visit the Fundred web site and contact Joe Pargola (joseph.pargola@childadvocate.state.nj.us).
