We're excited to partner with FNEI and Miami-Dade County Public Schools to help kids get ready for the new school year," said Founder of CityPacks NFT, Diego Mey.
MIAMI, FL, September 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- CityPacks is an NFT program that is the first of its kind. The "Back To School Supply Drive" campaign is driven by NFT sales and designed to support students in Miami-Dade County Public Schools. CityPacks is inviting community members to mint or donate to fund supplies and resources they need to start the school year off right.
CityPacks 001 Collection Funds are dedicated to ensuring children get the materials they need for the school year. Funds that the NFTs collection brings in will be donated to FNEI (Foundation for New Education Initiatives, Inc.), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with a primary focus on education.
"We're excited to partner with FNEI and Miami-Dade County Public Schools to help kids get ready for the new school year," said Founder of CityPacks NFT, Diego Mey. "With Citypacks (Miami Collection 001), we hope to raise enough funds to provide every child in the district with the necessary school supplies they need and build the foundation for web3 education."
Ann De Las Pozas, Executive Director of the Foundation For New Education Initiatives, Inc., says, "The community plays a vital role in supporting successful learning outcomes, and Citypacks' NFT is a novel way to engage the community and take part in building student success."
The purpose of the NFT program from CityPacks is to improve the opportunities for students to succeed by providing them with necessary supplies and developing programs to support their interests. Proceeds from CityPacks NFTs help promote arts and science programs in public schools across Miami and implement education and access to blockchain technology.
The CityPacks NFT collection features one-of-a-kind illustrations of 3D backpacks on the Stacks blockchain network. The CityPacks NFT collection has already succeeded in raising more than $10,000 to donate to FNEI.
Money generated through these collectibles will go towards programs for students like the Cultural Passport Program and STEAM Lab programs. The NFTs from CityPacks are also helping fund the development of a Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Program in schools (for children in Kindergarten to Grade 12) and Mini-Grants initiatives.
According to CityPacks, every three NFT minted provide supplies for one elementary school student through partnerships with Stacks NFTs Community Members and Supporters.
CityPacks is an NFT Collection of unique 3D illustrated backpacks living on the Stacks blockchain, with the mechanism to fund the Educational Programs for FNEI, the direct-support organization for Miami-Dade County Public Schools.
