Their aim is to memorialize the 2,000 hamsters that were culled during a Covid-19 preventative exercise in January 2022, through NFTs that feature the different faces of the beloved hamsters. All proceeds from the NFT sale, minus administrative and operational costs, will be donated to Lifelong Animal Protection to support animal welfare.
"Save the Hamsters' is a reaction to the culling of 2,000 hamsters in Hong Kong. We are looking to create something positive from this sad news by raising funds to donate to charity. We are using NFTs as a vehicle to bring awareness to and raise funds for important causes." said Lawrence Lo, Tokens of Hope.
