Giving is Beautiful 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. The project is a creative compassion initiative of Baitulmaal, Inc., through which the organization and artists collaborate for the purpose of turning art into hope for people in need around the world.
The flagship of this initiative 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.
Inclusion into the Giving is Beautiful collection is by invitation only, but we welcome recommendations.
