Can projects in the virtual world change the real world for the better? If you look at what House of Legend (HOL) has been up to, then the answer appears to be a clear yes. Ever since its launch, the project has been leading the way on how to harness the potential of NFT, art, and blockchain technology to address pressing humanitarian challenges.
To this end, it has garnered the support of several like-minded organizations that want to give back - including global NGOs as well as major brands in the finance and crypto industries. With a growing list of brands partnering with their social impact initiatives, HOL could well be on its way to creating one of the biggest philanthropic collectives in the NFT space.
House of Legends, and the production house behind it, Meta-Brothers, hosts a unique collection of super-rare NFT artworks. Their one of its kind collection of quirky pop art depicts some of the most inspirational men and women in history, such as Oprah, Elon Musk, Sigmund Freud, Frida Kahlo, and Leonard Cohen, among others. And the creative force behind this unique collection is the award-winning, Forbes 30-under-30 digital artist Amit Shimoni, who is HOL’s chief art director.
Unlike other NFT-auctioning platforms, HOL looks to make a real difference in people’s lives with every sale. The project redirects a portion of its NFT sales proceeds towards building clean water wells for communities in need across Africa and India. This way, it can provide access to clean, safe water for life to hundreds of thousands of people worldwide. Its ultimate goal is to ensure that 1 million people in remote communities never have to worry about the lack of potable water ever again. By doing this, they hope to help improve their lives and increase the chances of building a brighter future for their families.
Here are some of the brands, organizations, and projects accompanying House of Legends on their mission to build a better future for those in need.
One of HOL’s most important collaborations is a close partnership with Drop4Drop, a charitable community development organization dedicated to fighting the global water crisis by building sustainable water projects in communities across the world. . Its goal is to provide #cleanwaterforall and help the nearly 663 million people worldwide access safe, drinkable water.
So far, House of Legends and Drop4Drop have helped build 8 wells to provide over 8,500 people with clean water for life. Their projects extend to South Sudan, Gambia, Mozambique, Malawi, Uganda, India, and beyond. Easy access to safe water sources will help these communities thrive and develop sustainably.
HOL distributes 100% of funds raised from the sale of charity NTFs towards its clean water wells operations with Drop4Drop. Therefore, every NFT sale can help change the lives of people in need.
