LAKE NONA, Fla., Nov. 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — SEVA.LOVE announces an NFT for good collaboration to benefit the Community of Unity non-profit organization in collaboration with the iconic luxury fitness and lifestyle brand, Dogpound, renowned model and actress Yovanna Ventura, and acclaimed NFT artist Wes Henry.
The NFT series will be focused on community and connection which has been core to the ethos of Dogpound. The “Dogpound for Good” NFT series will feature the ambassadors of Dogpound with their canine companions. The series has been dedicated to support mental health and the role pets have played in alleviating the decline of individual mental health and simultaneously mitigated symptoms of loneliness during the pandemic.
“We’re really excited to be pushing the boundaries of innovation at Dogpound.” Says Jenny Wang, CTO of Dogpound. She continues, “These NFTs will focus on well-being and community building to unlock utility values such as personal training and meditation sessions from leading influencers via the Dogpound network”.
Stepping in to be the first muse for the series alongside her dogs, Yovanna Ventura said, “I’m so excited to be a part of Dogpound’s first Seva Love NFT and be able to announce it on my birthday! I love being able to give back and am so inspired by the work of Community of Unity.”
Community of Unity focuses on connecting underserved youth in New Your City to opportunities and experiences that can inspire and empower them to find success and fulfillment in life. Proceeds from the drop will help Community of Unity continue to fund its year round programming that has already been proven to have a major impact on their students’ confidence and vision for their lives.
Marisa Zullin, Executive Director of the Community of Unity nonprofit said, “We love partnering with Dogpound because they believe so strongly in Community of Unity’s emphasis on healthy habits and wellness. Dogpound’s support has really shown our students that the wider community believes in their capacity to do great things and design their own future!”
Dogpound founder and CEO Kirk Myers acclaimed “Deepak Chopra is the global thought leader in wellbeing, and ever since I was diagnosed with heart failure at an early age, my dream has always been to help others to be as healthy as they can be.”
