Freedom Squares NFT Collection Converts Zelensky’s Words into Aid for Ukraine

Freedom Squares is a brand new Ethereum NFT collection which aims to raise funds for the well-known relief organizations working in Ukraine. $100 million in cryptocurrency and NFTs has already been accumulated and donated to Ukraine since the beginning of the invasion in February. However, help is still very much needed.

Turning the President’s Words into Financial Aid

On March 1st, Kharkiv’s Freedom Square was bombed by the Russian army, and that’s when President Volodymyr Zenelsky announced: ‘Every square today, no matter what it’s called, is going to be called Freedom Square, in every city of our country’.

The ‘Freedom Squares‘ NFT collection is an idea by John Pleasants, the CEO of Brava Home, who got the idea after hearing President Zelensky’s speech. Mr. Pleasants believes it could be a spiritually uplifting thing for people to map all of the most important squares in the country, while turning them into NFTs would provide significant financial aid.

Upcoming Public Sale Event to Raise Over $2 Million

The Freedom Squares NFT collection will consist of 6,468 pieces representing 1,617 city squares of Ukraine in four different designs. In addition, anyone who manages to collect all four different styles, will receive a bonus NFT, the ‘Guardian’ version, by airdrop.

The public sale event is set to begin on May 10th, and each piece will cost 0.1 ETH (or $295 USD at today’s prices). Freedom Squares is intended to raise a minimum of 755 ETH, which would be approximately $2.2 million. 

The raised funds will go to ‘CORE’ and ‘World Central Kitchen’, two American organizations that are providing huge relief in Ukraine. The NFT collection will also help raise awareness of suffering communities. Beforehand, Pleasants pointed out that Web 3.0 could play a huge role in the preservation of democracy.
