About Giving is Beautiful
Giving is Beautiful is a creative compassion initiative of Baitulmaal, Inc., through which the organization and artists collaborate for the purpose of turning art, music, literature, and other forms of creative expression into hope for people in need around the world.
This initiative officially launched on December 26, 2021, with a pop-up art gallery at the MAS-ICNA Convention held in the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. Part of this pop-up art gallery is the charitable digital art NFT collection on OpenSea. Artists who are invited to collaborate in this collection agree to donate royalties from sales made in the collection to Baitulmaal.
The Inaugural Drop included four artists, each submitting three pieces of digital art. In less than one week, more than 50% of the NFTs were sold — and more digital art NFTs are on the way.
In addition to the collection on OpenSea, Baitulmaal is also listed as a social cause on the DoinGud charity NFT marketplace. As a listed social cause, digital artists can mint their art as an NFT and donate a portion of sales and royalties to Baitulmaal. The charity had the honor of being included in the DoinGud Origins Exhibition which launched the platform.
Now we are expanding into the areas of art, music, and literature working with visual artists, musicians and performing artists as well as authors and poets to help turn creativity and compassion into hope.
Inclusion into the Giving is Beautiful collection is by invitation only, but we welcome recommendations.
