All Proceeds from Eaton’s Latest NFT Drop on OpenSea Will Be Donated to Aid CORE’s Ukraine Refugee Crisis Response
, /PRNewswire/ — Tristan Eaton is not one to stay silent. Throughout his 25+ year career, he has made a name for himself, not just an artist who stands up to injustice, but one who always puts his art where his heart is. Now, in a time of great need for Ukraine, Eaton joins forces with CORE (Community Organized Relief Effort) to raise money for the non-profit’s Ukraine refugee crisis response.
As an NFT early adopter Eaton is in the prime position to use his influence for an admirable cause, proving the blockchain’s philanthropic potential. In order to provide the most direct help, Eaton has teamed up with CORE, dropping a rendering of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the message Слава Україні. Releasing as an edition of 500 on OpenSea on 4/19 for 0.1 ETH, it is an accessible piece of art to add to your personal collection in pursuit of a truly noble cause. Collectors with 10+ will receive a special edition signed print.
“Like most of the world, I’m horrified to see what’s happening in Ukraine right now. My heart goes out to the thousands of innocent people fleeing their homes because of a senseless war. The way I’ve made change in the world is through my art. While sitting half way across the world I felt helpless but compelled to act and create.” – Tristan Eaton
The funds from the NFT sale will be distributed to CORE and go towards the organization’s ongoing relief efforts to provide cash assistance and emergency relief supplies.
