A collective of Jewish creators have teamed up to launch an NFT project that will raise funds for women’s nonprofits. The philanthropic cause will donate much of its proceeds to charities promoting women’s rights, especially as they relate to the Jewish community. The campaign will directly benefit women in Jewish communities while showcasing the power of NFTs for inspiring positive change.
Artist Jill Blutt, writer Leigh Cuen, and technologist Yotam Bar-On are among the many creators behind this interactive digital art project. The Matriarchs, as it is known, will launch publicly on October 11, 2022. Until then, supporters are welcome to join the community conversation on Telegram. The launch will be marked by the promotion of visual art representing six Jewish female leaders throughout history, published in the form of unique NFTs. Each of the NFTs will be accompanied by written biographies and some will include unlockable, secret perks as well.
The bulk of the proceeds from the sale of the NFTs will be donated to nonprofits dedicated to promoting women’s rights such as the National Council of Jewish Women, although not limited to it. The NCJW is spearheading the Jewish community’s response to American restrictions on abortion access and healthcare. Other nonprofits may be chosen by the community as well.
“There’s never been a more important time for feminists around the world to support religious freedom in the United States, especially as it pertains to the Jewish perspective on women’s right to health care,” Cuen said. “So we’re collaborating with Jewish creators around the world to explore how we can practice effective altruism through art.”
The Matriarchs, led by a prominent group of feminist entrepreneurs, aims to create a unique community that is open to people of all faiths and backgrounds who are interested in learning more about women leaders throughout history.
The collective’s first NFT drop is part of a broader trend for leveraging NFTs for social causes. The transparency provided by blockchain technology, coupled with the intersection with artists whose industry is historically aligned with benevolent causes, have made NFTs an ideal fundraising vehicle.
A band of Jewish creators have teamed up to create an interactive art project called “The Matriarchs.” A collection of visual art representing Jewish women leaders throughout history, published in the form of 6 unique NFTs, with written biographies and a few unlockable goodies to boot.
