HILVERSUM, NETHERLANDS (July 27, 2022) – Starting on August 1st, for the first time ever,
young NFT artists are partnering with Make-A-Wish International, along with Kids NFT
Magazine and TOKNS, to grant wishes to children with critical illness throughout the
international community. Make-A-Wish International anticipates granting over 17,000 wishes
to critically ill children around the world this year.
Donors who help grant a wish will receive a “Tokn of appreciation” – a non-transferable NFT
featuring artwork from one of the young artists at NFT Kids Magazine. This unique and one-of-
a kind NFT collection will be available exclusively to donations received through select crypto
and traditional giving platforms. Visit https://www.worldwish.org/nfts-for-wishes for details
and links to donate.
The free Tokn is minted to the Ethereum blockchain and held securely in a user-created Tokn
wallet. It can be viewed on marketplaces like OpenSea and proudly displayed on social
channels as proof of support. Ownership also unlocks access to the NFT Kids Magazine
community and future NFT drops made available through this partnership. The blockchain
technology is powered by TOKNS, a platform enabling issuers to recognize and reward users
with NFTs using a new “Soulbound” standard recently detailed by Ethereum founder Vitalik
Buterin. These NFTs are meant to be held forever and displayed only by the person (Soul)
Claira Sozandge of NFT Kids Magazine said, “It is such an exciting time for young artists to
create like never before. We believe NFTs are a new avenue to help create awareness and
change. We are beyond excited to partner with Make Wish Foundation and Tokns to give an
amazing opportunity for NFT Kid artists to use their magic to help grant kids’ wishes
worldwide. It’s a true honour beyond our wildest dreams.”
‘The pandemic has fostered innovation for Make-A-Wish International – in wish granting and
in fundraising – and we already recognize the potential for the Metaverse and the NFT
community to help us reach every eligible child around the world who needs a wish,’ said
Luciano Manzo, CEO of Make-A- Wish International.
“Make-A-Wish International and NFT Kids Magazine are setting a new standard for engaging
the NFT community and recognizing supporters with this innovative campaign,” says Tokns
founder Jamie Tedford. “Providing donors with an immutable, non-transferable proof of
support, has intrinsic value well beyond the transactional nature of many NFT campaigns
