Trippy Bunny NFT, a new non-profit NFT (non-fungible token) project based on Solana, has announced it will donate all proceeds to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The contribution was also sponsored by The Giving Block crypto donation platform for a total of almost $221,000 in GUSD (Gemini Dollars).

The donation was announced on Suicide Prevention Day, 10th September. Suicide Prevention Day was first organised in 2003 by the International Association on Suicide Prevention. Today, it’s supported by the World Health Organization and the World Federation for Mental Health.

The proceeds ($220,886) from the Trippy Bunny mint were collected in Gemini Dollars (GUSD). The entire amount will be donated to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The project has published transaction hash IDs, which appeared on Etherscan.

Trippy Bunny minted 1,111 NFTs on 10th September, with each collection valued at 1.11 SOL. The transfer of GUSD tokens was sponsored by The Giving Block, a crypto donation platform that has already launched several campaigns to increase donations from the crypto industry. The company’s latest initiative, the Crypto Giving Pledge, was attended by leading industry veterans such as Ryan Selkis, Dan Matuszewski, Qiao Wang and Haseeb Qureshi.

“We’re excited to continue to see such generosity from NFT creators and the broader crypto community,” co-founder of The Giving Block Alex Wilson stated.

The crypto industry has demonstrated its generosity by donating millions to charitable organisations. In May 2021, crypto projects Munch and Elongate collectively raised more than £2 million for non-profit organisations. In January 2021, the American Cancer Society also announced the creation of the Cancer Crypto Fund.
