• Trippy Bunny NFT Donates 100% of Mint Proceeds to Suicide Prevention Foundation

  • Trippy Bunny NFT, a new unforgeable token project built on Solana, has announced that it is donating all proceeds from the sale of its mints to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

    The announcement was made on Suicide Prevention Day, a global awareness event held around the world. This annual awareness day was first organized by the International Association for Suicide Prevention in 2003. Today, it is supported by the World Health Organization and the World Federation for Mental Health.

    Globally, an estimated 700,000 people die by suicide each year, and according to the United for Global Mental Health, an international foundation promoting mental health, in 2019, it is estimated that more than one in every 100 people worldwide will be caused by suicide.

    Proceeds from the Trippy Bunny mint are collected through Gemini Dollars (GUSD) and total $220,886. The entire amount will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The project published the transaction hash mark, which appears on Etherscan.

    Trippy Bunny minted 1,111 NFTs on Sept. 10, valued at 1.11 SOL per collection.

    The transfer of GUSD tokens was facilitated by The Giving Block, a cryptocurrency donation platform that has launched several initiatives to increase charitable donations to the blockchain industry. The company’s latest initiative, dubbed the “Cryptocurrency Giving Pledge,” has seen contributions from leading industry veterans including Ryan Selkis, Dan Matuszewski, Qiao Wang, and Haseeb Qureshi.

    The cryptocurrency industry has already demonstrated its generosity by donating millions of dollars to charitable organizations. In May this year, cryptocurrency projects Munch and Elongate raised a combined total of more than $3 million for various nonprofits. Some leading nonprofits have also begun accepting cryptocurrency donations, including the American Cancer Society, which announced a $1 million cancer crypto fund in January to increase its ability to accept donations.
