WISe.ART is far more than a secured vetted NFT marketplace. It cares about society and the planet and supports many environmentally friendly projects, which place humans at the heart of the action with a view to raise awareness and funds.
We aim to embrace and accompany the artists who onboard their work or collectibles on the platform. Quality and security are key in our business model. Collectors should feel comfortable with their investments and know that they are helping the world while enjoying the thrill of peacekeeping and peacebuilding.
In 2022, WISe.ART asked artists on the platform to donate one or more works to raise funds for the “Lost Children of Ukraine” cause. We are proud to announce that 100% of our artists community responded positively.
“Human Race for Children of Ukraine” is a humanitarian program initiated by WISe.ART and the International Red Cross Committee to raise funds for Ukrainian children affected by the war.
The DREAM Team Project is honored to have the opportunity to be part of this program. Initially, The DREAM Team Project, through Indra Putra, were contacted by Sixtine Crutchfield (Art Director of WISe.ART) by conveying the Human Race for Children of Ukraine program and inviting them to participate in this charity program.
This incredible story is told by the staff of IMProduction, “…And finally we agreed to support this program by presenting a Poster Human Race for Children of Ukraine which was jointly signed by all members of the DREAM Team Project as a form of our support. This poster, organized by Derek Sherinian, took almost 3 months to bring to fruition, as it had to be shipped from Bali to Los Angeles, Tennessee, New Jersey and finally back to Jakarta. The Human Race for Children of Ukraine special poster is signed by: Derek Sherinian, Billy Sheehan, Simon Phillips, Jeff Scott Soto, Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal, Dino Jelusic, Once Mekel, Edo Widiz & Indra Putra.”
Concurrently, Indra Putra, as a representative of The DREAM Team Project, invited other parties to participate in the program. Of note, Steve Wozniak, the co-founder of Apple Computers, was contacted to participate in this program. Mr. Wozniak, through his charity WOZ Organization, has done a plethora of work in assisting charitable programs. The DREAM Team Project contacted the WOZ Organization and were able to coordinate with a representative from the organization, Ms. Heidi.
With the assistance of the incredibly dedicated Ms. Heidi, we prepared merchandise to be signed by Mr. Wozniak for the Human Race Children Of Ukraine program. We eventually received the good news from Ms. Heidi that Mr. Wozniak had signed 3 items of merchandise that we provided, and Mr. Wozniak wrote down a sentence ‘Wozniak is a Ukrainian Name!’
This is a huge support from Mr. Wozniak to this charity program and we are very grateful to Ms. Heidi and especially to Mr. Wozniak.
