Mars Panda, an all-in-one blockchain aggregation platform, has launched a charity NFT (non-fungible tokens) auction. The charity NFT auction is launched to support UNHCR’s humanitarian efforts for displaced Afghans. The Mars Panda NFT charity auction supporting UNHCR will take place from January 31, 2022, to March 4, 2022. It will feature over 30 NFTs that world-renowned authors, digital and fine arts artists, NFT influencers, and professional footballers have pledged to the auction.
Minus administrative and operational costs, all proceeds from the charity auction will be donated to UNHCR. In addition, it will be donated to support vulnerable displaced families affected by the Afghanistan emergency. Kevin Pang, the CEO of Mars Panda World, said, “The relentless influx of wealth and interest in NFTs are perfect ingredients to make them a force of good. NFTs have empowered everyone to convert their art and creativity into meaningful actions targeting social and humanitarian issues.”
The VIP contributors are world-renowned authors and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassadors Khaled Hosseini and Neil Gaiman, illustrator Dan Williams, Thai Venerable and UNHCR Patron Phra Medhivajirodom. Neil Gaiman has donated a UNHCR-produced film of his poem What You Need To Be Warm, which includes a never-before-seen message from Neil about the poem’s writing and adaptation into a film. Winners of this NFT will also receive a signed copy of The Sandman, along with a personalised message from Neil Gaiman.
Dan Williams has donated 17 original ink and watercolour illustrations from Sea Prayer, a short book by Khaled Hosseini. Winning bidders will also receive a copy of Sea Prayer signed by Khaled.
