The Dole Sunshine Company and acclaimed artist David Datuna have joined forces to raise money for the Boys & Girls Club to fund nutrition-focused initiatives, and bring pop-up farmers markets and nutritious food to cities across the USA. Boys & Girls Clubs of America are located throughout the country and provide a safe place for kids and teens to learn and grow through high-impact youth development programs.
The NFT collection is inspired by Dole’s ‘Sunshine for All’ project which aims to increase awareness of food insecurity and malnutrition worldwide, while raising funds toward alleviating hunger. The collection will be available on Rarible on May 6 at 3:30pm PST. Datuna earned the nickname of “The Hungry Artist” at Art Basel Miami Beach in 2019 when he casually walked over to a $120,000 artwork of a banana duct-taped to a canvas, and ate the banana.
“Ever since I ate the banana from the wall to show how ridiculous the world can be to sell a banana for $120,000, Dole reached out because they were working on how to make nutrition more accessible and I thought, oh my God, this is perfect,” says Datuna.
The partnership with Datuna will converge creativity, innovation and technology to help Dole achieve its aim of providing good nutrition to 1 billion people by 2025. NFT Plazas is proud to be a media partner for the campaign and support Dole in raising funds to bring nutritious food and education into underserved food deserts.
Stay tuned for the details of the upcoming NFT collection and Rarible NFT Sweepstake Campaign.
