Tezos NFT Community Launches Campaign to Support Gaza

Last Saturday we followed the launch of the Tezos for Palestine (Tez4Pal) campaign, which calls on NFT artists and collectors on the Tezos blockchain to contribute to raising donations for Gaza. The donations will go to INARA, an NGO that provides critical and urgently needed relief support, especially in light of the unprecedented catastrophe witnessed in the Gaza Strip, including delivering medical supplies to Gaza’s hospitals and providing support to medical and relief workers.

The campaign runs from January 20 to February 20 of this year, and all NFT artists on Tezos can participate by using the #Tez4Pal hashtag and allocating between 50% – 100% of NFT sales to be directed to INARA. People can also send their donations directly to INARA’s wallet on the Tezos blockchain.

One of the activities on the X platform (formerly Twitter), @LN0ir, helped raise awareness about the campaign by organizing several spaces on the platform, and sharing cultural and visual references from the Palestinian Museum and the Palestinian digital space with artists, such as the watermelon emoji used to resist algorithmic censorship of pro-Palestinian content.

In early 2023, the Tezos NFT community also collaborated with INARA to organize a fundraising campaign for those affected by the earthquake on the Turkish-Syrian border, which at the time succeeded in raising 91,000 British pounds according to a press release shared by INARA with Taxir.
