Ukrainian Charity Organization Launches NFT Sale – Pray4Ukraine, a newly founded Ukrainian charity initiative, has brought together hundreds of digital artists from throughout the country to create 10,000 NFT art pieces. The artists seek to generate donations for humanitarian help and to support the country’s military forces by collaborating with Pray4Ukraine.
The Pray4Ukraine team also announced in a statement that the charitable group has already begun selling its NFT collection, which includes 9,930 artworks.
The proceeds from the sale will go directly to the wallet of Come Back Alive, another charitable organization that has been on the “humanitarian frontline since May 2014,” according to the statement. Financial data will be issued daily via Pray4Ukraine’s public channels, the statement adds.
The Pray4Ukraine team claimed it will employ digital art and NFTs to achieve the organization’s greater goal of ending hostilities between Ukraine and Russia, in addition to generating donations for Ukrainians affected by the war.
The statement went on to say:
“The mission of Pray4Ukraine is to demonstrate that everyone can help end the war in Ukraine and save countless lives. The crypto community has an alternate option of joining a powerful global solidarity movement thanks to digital art and NFT.
One of the artists supporting the cause, Olga from Kyiv, has refused to leave the capital, where she “continues to pour her awareness of the encircling events into digital art.”
While the war has made it tough to find inspiration, another artist, Kamila, said that her desire to contribute in any way she can has enabled her to overcome the hurdles she has faced since Russia invaded Ukraine.
