Justice Reigns Supreme: A NFT Collection for a Cause
After more than a year of COVID-19, charities have felt the impact of the pandemic more than most organizations. The economic shock has seen donations dry up, and opportunities to give to charity in person are few. Yet, nonprofits’ demand for aid is at an all-time high. With more people seeking help, but funds dwindling, charities are struggling. The Legaler Aid charity hopes to radically change that, with its NFT charity auction featuring legendary comic artist Jose Delbo and world famous DJ, Diplo in collaboration with the expert 3D animators at Vúho and professional comic colorist Ross Campbell.
Like the rest of the world, philanthropy is turning to technology to adapt. In the case of Legaler Aid, that tech is NFTs, the blockchain-based digital art taking the creative world by storm. The charity will see leading artists collaborating to release limited edition pieces for charity auction. These will not only fund their mission to help the eviction crisis but also act as permanent touchstones for the charity’s values of justice and fairness
