The core team of this project came to know of NFTs through GaryVee and the VeeFriends project. We were inspired by the effort to help educate the world about NFTs and Ethereum and by Gary’s positive outlook and “give first” mentality. Our choice to donate 51% of profits to charity was directly influenced by Gary’s belief in bringing 51% value to others rather than yourself. It is also our goal to help educate and guide first time NFT buyers. It’s our hope that we can share our experiences with those that are new to the space.

Allen has been working in the family development, youth support and charity sector for over 20 years. In that time, the under funding of youth and voluntary projects and programmes for young people has been very clear. It doesn’t take much to run a great project that can have a tremendous impact on young people’s lives.With that in mind, charity is a primary goal of this project. Fifty-one percent of profits from NFT sales will be donated to various charities helping to support young people. We’re hoping you’ll join us in helping to support the future and make a difference with helping various youth and environmental projects. Follow the Face Painted Kids YouTube Channel to catch Allen’s interviews with the charities Face Painted Kids will be supporting. Learn More FPK YouTube

Allen has worked in the youth & charity sector for over 20 years & saw his love of NFTs as an avenue to create a project that linked the work that he has done to support families & young people to a way to generate critical funding for charitable organisations that receive little to no government financial support. Al is looking forward to bringing a wellness element & strong community to this project. Each Face Painted Kid is inspired by an element of Allen’s work.
