Hope wants to flush away hunger for good

first_imgHope, IN—Numerous painted toilets have begun popping up all across town. And it has caused the small town of Hope to become flush with generosity“I thought how funny would it be if we traveled toilets and flushed away hunger,” said the project’s mastermind Whitney Budd.Budd is both the painter and the planter of these special latrines. She’s also the president of Student’s Fund for Hope, an organization that helps pay school-related expenses for local kids. The goal of this particular fundraiser is to “Flush Away Hunger” by creating a fund to help kids in need pay for overdue lunch accounts.“They can pay $10 to take it away or they can pay $20 dollars to send it to a friend or a family member or a neighbor,” Budd said. People also have the option to pay $30 to ensure they never get the toilet again or pay $40 in advance to be put on the “Party Pooper” list.The fundraiser lasts until tomorrow with a goal of  $2,000 for students at Flat Rock- Hawcreek schools. Last year, Student’s Fund for Hope helped pay off more than $6,000 of student lunch accounts that were in small claims court.last_img read more
