“I believe that something of such great value should be used for the greater good, besides achieving financial success through such investments of course. There are thousands of courses, charities, and projects that could use a percentage of profits made from these digital assets to make positive impacts globally,” Hamad, a former employee at several multi-nationals, said. “For years, I’ve believed in the power of expression through visuals and words, and today I’m filled with great enthusiasm and determination to make my artistic talent of use to others.”

The collection by the go-getter who has a passion for connecting with people from different parts of the world consists of a total of 13 cards. Each card holds the letter from the words ‘Forgotten Dogs’ and a digital drawing of different dog breeds, portraying the international varieties that need the help of humans.

“At the FDF, we plan to fulfill our mission by using all monies raised and donated to find homes for orphaned dogs in overpopulated shelters, and to improve their overall welfare,” FDF Founder Anthony Hudson said. “We do this by working with those who are dedicated to saving dogs, and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about this new partnership.”

While striving to make a positive impact in society and bringing change to where it is needed ,Hamad has also released two other NFT art collections. “Modern Compositions” and “Faces of Earth” “support blakINwite’s mission to make an impact on the female community by supporting women-owned businesses and talents from around the world.
