Dear Community members,
It’s late now here in GMT+8 and I’m overwhelmed with emotions but I’ll try my best to keep it cool to share my thoughts.
As you may already know (and if you didn’t, now you do), Pundi X and Function X have launched a joint charity project collaborating with Hope For Children CRC Policy Center today. It’s a mint-to-donate project that encourages PURSE token holders to make donation with PURSE and get a NFT as return of the kindness. Each NFT requires 20,000 PURSE to mint, which is appr. 20 USD (today’s price) each.
Simply put, with every NFT minted, 20 USD will go to the children suffering from war in Ukraine.
The idea of charity project came from Claudio’s suggestions and actions, we took the advice and quickly held internal discussions, and then it all went turbo: Who are the trustworthy org. to work with? How will we do this? What preparations should be done? How many NFTs to be created?..So many questions asked, and so many answers given, most importantly, so many actions taken within a very short time.
It is urgent, because the need for help is urgent, and we don’t want to waste a single second.
A special shoutout to @Peko and @BlueStitch. They spent so much time and effort perfecting the project and coordinating between different parties, and thank you so much to the tech team for the quick response to the request.
And here we are, the mint-to-donate charity project in on. Hope for Children NFT
And we need you.
I have to admit that I haven’t been able to watch the detailed news reports of the war, but I do keep myself updated with the status. Just the other day, I accidentally saw a video of a Ukrainian child walking across the boarders crying, in his hand holding a bag carrying his toy. Maybe his parents were around, maybe they weren’t, no matter what, a child shouldn’t be going through such horrific matter.
The image struck me so hard and I know I will never forget it. I cried myself to sleep that night.
Therefore, I was extra looking forward for the collab with Hope For Children to launch.
We all believe in the idea of the blockchain technology will change the world, we develop, we buy the dip, we FOMO, we HODL, we get excited about Metaverse, we work hard because we have faith that a better future will be crafted with blockchain.
And now here is a great opportunity to prove that we are right. The PURSE tokens held in your wallets are now more valuable than ever, for the hope they bring to those children is beyond market price, beyond high tech, beyond flipping, beyond you and me.
The amount to mint is small, and together we make it large.
I don’t know how much will 50,000 NFTs help, but any help is helpful.
I have used all my PURSE to mint already, I’ll keep collecting delegation rewards to mint more, and I sincerely invite you to join me, join us.
