Last year, I joined the board of trustees for a fantabulous organization here in Richmond. ART 180 creates and provides art-related programs for young people living in challenging circumstances, encouraging personal and community change through self-expression. In celebration of ART180's 10 year anniversary, there's a pretty nifty project happening. It's called Change for a Ten.
Here's how it works:
1. Download the Change for a Ten template here (or create your own the size of a dollar bill).
2. Draw, paint, write, sew, glue, color - or use whatever medium you choose - to show the kind of change you’d like to see in the community.
3. Submit your creation along with a real $10 donation to ART 180. (Click here for the address and for drop-off locations around town).
Need some inspiration? Visit the Change for a Ten blog to see what others have already submitted. And come back every day to see more!

So go ahead: Make art. Make change.
