Globally, an estimated 700,000 people kill themselves each year, according to United for Global Mental Health, an international mental health promotion foundation. In 2019, it was estimated that more than one in 100 deaths worldwide was caused by suicide.
Trippy Bunny’s mint product was raised in Gemini Dollars (GUSD) and totaled $ 220,886. The entire amount will go to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The project published the hash ID of the transaction, which appeared on Etherscan.
Trippy Bunny hit 1,111 NFT on September 10, and each collectible was valued at 1.11 SOL. At the time of writing, SOL is valued at just under $ 189, according to Cointelegraph Markets Pro.
The transfer of GUSD tokens was facilitated by The Giving Block, a cryptocurrency donation platform that has launched several initiatives to increase charitable contributions from the blockchain industry. The company’s latest initiative, dubbed Crypto Giving Pledge, saw contributions from industry veterans including Ryan Selkis, Dan Matuszewski, Qiao Wang and Haseeb Qureshi.

In May of this year, the Munch and Elongate crypto projects collectively raised over $ 3 million for various nonprofits. Several prominent nonprofits have also started accepting cryptocurrency contributions, including the American Cancer Society, which announced in January that it had established a $ 1 million Cancer Crypto Fund to increase its capacity to accept donations.
