3 embroidery artists weave NFT charity drop to help victims of human trafficking

Three embroidery artists — Russia’s Katerina Marchenko, Brazil’s Aline Brant and Ninni Luhtasaari of Finland — announced Thursday that they will be auctioning their nonfungible token (NFT) art pieces to support Hope for the Future (HFTF), a registered charity based in Austria. The proceeds of the auction will go to victims of human trafficking, who will be able to find work after their horrific experiences.

The NFT sale will take place on Orica between Dec. 27-30, with each piece having a floor price of $500. The auction’s goal is to raise $10,000 for the employment program.

“Even when one offers survivors the possibility to get out, they are mostly very traumatized by their experiences, they have little knowledge of the local language, and they must first become integrated step-by-step into normal life,” said Hope For the Future founder Andrea Staudenherz, adding:

“Incredibly, these renowned embroidery artists can now support our charity’s work via Orica at different sides of the world. These NFTs are giving us the hope that we could fund five days a week of training in 2022. Our budget currently only covers four days. “

Marchenko, who has over 400,000 followers on Instagram, added: “I’d followed this year’s excitement about NFTs but needed a reason bigger than being in it for the money. I was blown away when Orica informed me about Hope for the Future’s campaign. It’s an honor to auction my artwork in support of such a worthy cause. “

The intersection between philanthropic ventures and NFTs has been developing rapidly this year. In one example, Orica partnered with registered Austrian charity Bbanga Project and German digital artist Mellowmann to host an NFT drop, with proceeds going to the construction of a school in Uganda. In the United States, the Internal Revenue Service permits good Samaritans to write off their crypto or NFT proceed donations against their ordinary income, thereby saving ample tax dollars while simultaneously donating to good causes.
