What is Face Painted Kids?
Face Painted Kids is a collection of 9,000 hand-drawn, generative NTFs. The project was founded by Allen O’Donoghue, brought to life by the collaborative artistic works of Allen and Sarah Mac. The kid-themed art is inspired by Allen’s career in youth and family development, and was created as a way to connect with the NFT community while raising money for various youth-oriented charities based in Allen’s community in Ireland.
Who is Allen O’Donoghue?
Allen O’Donoghue (aka Al or AllenOD101) is a successful international speaker on youth and family development based in Drogheda, Ireland. Allen has made a direct impact in his community by working with at-risk youth, running a youth diversion project, and is a highly successful youth and family development coach, appearing regularly on the Elaine Show on Virgin Media TV and LMFM radio in Ireland. Allen also hosts the Motivation Interview Podcast Series, interviewing people from all backgrounds, all over the world, about their life experiences.
Allen joined the NFT community in Spring of 2021 after learning about NFTs from GaryVee and the VeeFriends launch. He quickly immersed himself in the community and rolled up his sleeves to help bridge the gap to introduce NFTs to the mainstream.
The idea for Face Painted Kids is inspired by Allen’s career and experience in youth and family development.

What’s the plan for Face Painted Kids?
There is a vision for Face Painted Kids that goes well beyond the initial roadmap and we are so excited for our long-term vision for the “kids”.
Our current roadmap includes the following, during and post sellout,
– 51% of profits from Initial sales go to charity.
– 5% of profits from sales go to a community wallet, used to curate art supporting young NFT artists.
– Virtual Personal Wellness Conferences
– Quarterly art airdrops
– Collaborations with other artists and mint opportunities.
– Physical Merchandise opportunities for token holders.
For future roadmaps, we are looking at the evolution of our “kids” for token holders, exploring the Sandbox and so much more.
