Our story began in early 2022, when Mik [age: 7, in Australia] was at home trying to help a Ukrainian refugee family feeling from the war, who had a child around the same age. Mik was concerned that this kid was lonely and afraid of loosing his home, his friends, his school and not knowing what will happen to him or where his life will be like moving forward. Mik thought to himself, how could he put a smile on this stranger’s face? Mik loves drawing, so he made a piece of art in order to show him that he has a new friend who wanted him to smile. Then we mailed it.
When Mik found out that his artwork was very positively received, he realized that there was an opportunity to spread more love and happiness to other kids in similar situations. After we discussed that there were millions of families with kids in this situation, he said “OHHH that’s a lot of drawings!”
We then brainstormed how we could crowdsource more genuine pieces of art to put more smiles on many more kids around the world and connect Kid-Artists with kids in need. Mik had an idea to see if his school and other schools would be interested to make more pieces of art.
Then he and his friends came up with the idea of turning the drawings into NFTs, which can be used to raise money for more children in need …and the rest is history ?
