A new initiative, Teddy DAO, seeks to leverage NFTs for charitable causes. Developed by Web3 software company Lucky Friday, Teddy DAO aims to utilize cryptocurrency as a funding mechanism to promote social impact worldwide. Partnering with global fundraising organization JustGiving, Teddy DAO is set to make a significant difference in the lives of those in need.
Daily Auctions for Charity
Beginning on June 23, Teddy DAO will launch daily auctions for its unique teddy bear NFTs. These adorable digital collectibles, created by renowned artist Yumi, will be minted on the cross-chain smart contract platform Moonbeam. The auction winners will have the opportunity to donate the proceeds from their NFT purchase to one of the 400 charities supported by JustGiving.
Teddy DAO’s collaboration with JustGiving allows it to tap into a vast network of 450,000 charities worldwide. Through the sale of the teddy bear NFTs, Teddy DAO aims to support various causes, ranging from education and healthcare to environmental conservation and disaster relief. The donated cryptocurrency is converted into fiat currency and channelled directly to the chosen charity through the JustGiving platform.
Building a Community for Social Change
The brainchild of David Chapman, Teddy DAO was inspired by a previous NFT sale that raised $15,000 for UNICEF. Drawing from that experience, Chapman recognized the immense potential of utilizing NFTs for social good. With Teddy DAO, he aims to build a community-driven organization that collectively contributes to meaningful causes.
As a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO), Teddy DAO is registered as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The vision for Teddy DAO goes beyond the initial NFT auctions. Chapman envisions a future where donors select Teddy DAO as their preferred charity, allowing the organization to build a treasury. The holders of the NFTs will have the power to vote on which social initiatives the funds should be allocated to, thus empowering the community to drive positive change.
Teddy DAO’s innovative approach to combining NFTs and charitable donations is set to make a significant impact on global social issues. Through daily NFT auctions and partnerships with JustGiving, Teddy DAO aims to leverage cryptocurrency for the greater good. By building a community of passionate individuals, Teddy DAO envisions a future where its treasury becomes a powerful force for positive change. With Teddy DAO, philanthropy meets the digital realm, paving the way for a new era of socially conscious giving.
