The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and neighbouring countries requires our collective support. Within a few days of the onset of the crisis, Crypto.com made a USD 1 million donation to the Red Cross Red Crescent, ensuring that the funds would be used to provide humanitarian relief to people affected.
Since then, events have escalated and so has the need for aid to help people suffering hardship. In partnership with the Red Cross Red Crescent, we are launching a campaign to raise awareness and funds to support their vitally important work. Our in-house team has created a TV commercial which will air multiple times during the live broadcast of the 94th Academy Awards in the United States, and we will also raise awareness on all of our social media platforms.
Viewers will be directed to our campaign page, where they can donate in one of three ways: with crypto, fiat, or by buying an NFT from the campaign collection.
Crypto.com will be matching all donations, in aggregate, up to USD 1 Million.

How Will the Donations be Used?
Your donation will go to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in support of people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The funds will be used to provide food, water, medicine, shelter, and other essential items.
Other examples of aid provided by the Red Cross Red Crescent include distributing wounded and first aid kits to hospitals, with each kit treating up to 50 people, and providing 1,000s of litres of drinking water in areas where supply has been disrupted, temporary accommodation along the borders, and bedding, clothes, and SIM cards so that people who were displaced can stay in touch with their loved ones.
