Tristan Eaton Will Release New NFT with Proceeds to Help Ukraine Refugee Crisis Response
In order to provide the most direct help, Eaton has teamed up with CORE combining artistic prowess with real crisis experience to raise funds to go towards the 12 million estimated people in Ukraine who are in need of relief.
Eaton has created a rendering of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy with the message Слава Україні, meaning "Glory to Ukraine, written across". It will be officially releasing as an edition of 500 on OpenSea on April 19, 2022. Anyone who collects 10 or more 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. With the motivation of my NFT collecting community and a box of spray paint, I knew I could help in some way.” - 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, such as hygiene kits and thermal blankets, as well as supporting community-based refugee centers in Poland and Romania as the influx of individuals fleeing continues to increase.
