Profits from the sale are going to the Ukrainian American Coordinating Council and the Web3 Developer fund, benefiting Ukrainian web3 developers and hospitals in Ukraine.

A historic NFT collaboration with Ukrainian star Wladimir Klitschko and legendary artist WhIsBe, “Vandalz for Ukraine: WhIsBe x Wladimir Klitschko” features four open editions of the artist’s “Vandal Gummy” bears in the colors of the Ukrainian flag. All proceeds will go to Red Cross Ukraine and UNICEF Ukraine, ensuring that funds from the NFT sale go directly to the resources most direly needed by Ukraine in its current defense against Russian forces.
