On 24 February 2022, a new dark chapter in human history was opened.

Once again, people have to flee, leaving their past and identity behind to protect themselves from bombs. The world as we know it is in danger when unalterable values are called into question. There are no winners in a war, only losers. In these dark hours, we want to set a sign of hope and love. For a better world of tomorrow.

With “Letters For Better Days”, the most extensive NFT charity campaign ever, we record people’s thoughts, their fears and sorrows in these difficult times but also their wishes for the future in handwritten and illustrated letters.

“Letters For Better Days” is a unique international campaign that addresses to prominent public figures and celebrities from music business, entertainment, film industry, television, arts, literature and sports from all over the world. “Letters For Better Days” gives them the chance to speak.

Not as a musician, actor or artist - but as a human being!

Together we have the power and the possibility to create a better world and better days.

Each letter is a historical document. A unique piece of contemporary history. All letters will be digitized and auctioned as a NFT, a digital artwork, on the plattform NIFTEE www.niftee.eu for charity.

The whole world has the opportunity to bid for one of these 100+ letters and at the same time donate urgently needed funds to victims of war. These letters will be opened in exactly 12 months. Until then, the donors carry their sealed digital envelope in their wallet and hope in their hearts.

With the proceeds we support ARTHELPS.

With the song and the campaign "Letters For Better Days", we intend to raise a large sum of money for ARTHELPS. The project is an initiative of creative people and artists and works in a special way for children and young people in the crisis regions all over the world.

In addition to project locations in Iraq, South Africa and Brazil, ARTHELPS has also had a project location in eastern Ukraine for some time. ARTHELPS creates spaces and opportunities to offer children and young people there a creative retreat.

“Hopefully, at some point the weapons will be silent again.Then people, children and young people will need exactly such places where they can feel safe and where they can process their traumas.” (Tom Lupo, ARTHELPS)

FAQ

Who is the participant target group of the campaign “Letter For Better Days” ?

“Letters For Better Days” is addressed to prominent public figures and celebrities from music business, entertainment, film industry, television, arts, literature and sports from all over the world who want to set a sign for peace with their participation and their personal statement.

At the same time, the campaign would explicitly like to address to private citizens who are not in public but who also have to say something and wish to share their personal story (for example an escape experience) and their thoughts and feelings with the world.

Does the campaign have a political background?

No. “Letters For Better Days” understands itself as a part of the worldwide peace movement. By collecting donations, the campaign aims to make a contribution for an improvement of the world situation, especially the recent situation in the Ukraine, and the increasing numbers of crisis areas worldwide. ​

Why will the secret of the NFTs and letters will only be revealed after 12 months?

It is a conscious decision of the campaign that NFTs and letters both will be kept as a secret and only be revealed after 12 months. During 12 months, there are a lot of things to happen that hopefully make a change for the better. At the same time, it will be much more exciting and moving to look back at the recent situation.
