The Sandbox metaverse to support the Ukrainian population

With numerous solidarity initiatives, the metaverse The Sandbox takes sides with the war-affected Ukrainian population. The platform has in fact donated 1,000,000 SAND (its proprietary cryptocurrency) to UNICEF, for a total of 300,000 euros. The funds will be used to provide water, medical kits and support educational programs for refugees. Added to this are numerous collections of NFTs put up for sale with the aim of raising funds.

UNICEF initiatives supported by The Sandbox

The donation will be preparatory to the following projects implemented by UNICEF:

  • Supply of drinking water to nearly 300,000 people and 14.25 tons of chlorine for purification in conflict zones.
  • Delivery of medical supplies to 49 hospitals for over 820,000 people.
  • Distribution of 1,000 tons of emergency supplies including medical kits, water purification kits, school supplies, face masks, clothing and more.
  • Development of procedures to welcome unaccompanied minors and implementation of an online and face-to-face education system for refugees.

The metaverse for Ukraine: all NFT charitable projects

Added to this are the numerous projects born on the metaverse in support of the Ukrainian population. In particular The Sandbox promotes the following:

  • Wave with Ukraine: 10,000 NFTs representing the Ukrainian flag for sale on the MAUER website. The price is $ 100 per copy and all money raised will go to charities verified by MAUER. The Sandbox also undertakes to pay on its own free the consideration of the money raised from the sales.
  • Union for Peace: an NFT created by the French artist Okiti’x using the VoxEdit software. The token has been auctioned on OpenSea and all proceeds will go to UNICEF initiatives in support of children affected by war.
  • Ukraine 24.02.2022: an NFT collection created by the Ukrainian voxel artist, Ilya, available for purchase on The Sandbox marketplace. The work represents the concepts of peace, independence and civil resistance and is available in 200 copies at the price of 15 SAND each. Also in this case, the entire proceeds will go to support the victims of war.
