Life is Like Art...You Create It.
The Inspiration for FooCuties
As a single mother relying solely on her income, there have been many times where I have had to face an near empty-refrigerator with growing kids in the house. Having had to deal with sorting out which bills to pay, and which bills can wait (with late fees attached on), I can relate to the suffering that many families in poverty face.
I have been fortunate enough to lift myself (with the help of others) out of poverty enough to not have to wonder where my next meal is, but there are so many out there who have not been able to. With the pandemic hitting, many more are now facing the same situation or worse and the need for help grows ever more.
My best friend is going through poverty and homelessness and is currently living with me as I help her to move forward and eventually get back on her feet. Having spent countless hours talking about the hunger that homeless and people in poverty face (and her experience with it), it definitely puts a spin on one's perspective.
I have been gifted with the ability to create art. I have always tried to use my gift to help others. I have made countless pieces of art for beginning streamers at prices way below their worth or free, in order to help them achieve their dreams with artwork that is much expected in the streamer community. I have donated art to charity auctions, and given away art as gifts to those who cannot afford it. Even commissions have been priced lower, because I believe that everyone should be able to have the ability to purchase custom art for their enjoyment at prices they can afford.
With my newfound passion for the Crypto World, creating an NFT collection where art can be made with charitable reasons behind it is a given. Having faced food insecurity myself in the past as well as helping to lift a friend out of homelessness, Hunger for a theme makes it even more personal. I look forward to seeing this project come to fruition and hope many others will be as well.
