Who we are
Our goal is to create a platform bringing together Artists and NGOs to raise funds for great environmental and humanitarian causes in exchange for NFTs.
Our project is based on two observations:
1. In 2021, giving to non-profits is rarely digital-friendly nor “sexy” (physical mail, candles as rewards for donations ...). Even the largest NGOs have difficulty attracting donations from people under 40.
2. A new form of digital art, NFTs, is exploding and creating a new generation of patrons in search of meaning and recognition.
In 2020, Damien Hirst decided to create limited edition prints to raise money for charity, supporting Italian children from disadvantaged backgrounds who have been affected by school closures during the COVID19 crisis. The same year, Supreme’s Takashi Murakami TShirts Sold Out to Raise $1 Million for Covid-19 Relief.
Our objective is to replicate these projects at scale, by enabling artists to raise funds for causes they hold in their hearts by creating collections of unique NFTs.
