In partnership with the Botswana Red Cross Society and acclaimed artist Remo Camerota, Leyline has just dropped their first-ever charity NFT auction. Their mission: To validate how NFT auctions, gaming, art, and social impact development organizations can work together, advancing a common goal of eliminating poverty and rewarding acts of altruism around the world.
In addition to being an Open Knowledge, Open Source project, Leyline is a California Nonprofit Organization – A Transformative Digital Economy Nonprofit. By rewarding those who do good, Leyline strives to eradicate poverty. For individuals who perform small acts of altruism every day, the mission is to create a perpetual passive income stream. By using Leyline, users can connect with wellness activities, blood donations, and community service opportunities. In order to validate these actions, Leyline partners with trusted nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, and NGOs which verify the various good actions people may undertake. Leyline points are given as rewards for these good deeds which can be redeemed for goods of cash value, cryptocurrencies, and Non-Fungible Tokens.
“Our revenue above operating costs will be reallocated back to a prize pool to help get funds into the hands of people who truly need it. We’re not here to become billionaires; we’re here to solve the biggest problems facing humanity” explains Jeremy Dela Rosa, founder and CEO of Leyline.

About Botswana Red Cross Society
There are almost 200 national and International Red Cross and Red Crescent associations around the world. It is considered the world’s largest humanitarian network.
Allied to no government and without political, religious or cultural affiliations, the nonprofit Red Cross and Red Crescent associations, were founded to respond to the well-being of war-wounded by providing assistance without discrimination on the battlefield and to prevent and alleviate suffering. Botswana Red Cross Society is one branch of these organizations with the same directive.
Botswana Red Cross Society essentially has two purposes: To protect life and health as well as to ensure that human rights are respected. Throughout the world, its ideals and principles are aimed at promoting friendship, cooperation, and lasting peace.
“Our mission is to alleviate human suffering by providing humanitarian services to the most vulnerable communities. They are powered by over 10,000 volunteers across Southern Africa.”
About The Artist – Remo Camerota
Remo proudly collaborated with Leyline on the organization’s first NFT drop to advance the social cause and help as many families as possible. A distinguished artist, Remo is also an award-winning photographer, director, and recognized figure in the NFT space. The magazine “Lurzer’s Archive” recently named him one of its 200 best creatives. Some of his works have been exhibited at Carrousel du Louvre (Paris) and he has collaborated with today’s leading brands and artists to create artwork such as Banksy, Obey, and Tommy Hilfiger, among others.

About The Fundraiser
The artwork auction proceeds will be split between artists, social impact organizations, Leyline’s altruistic platform, and its users to create a win-win-win ecosystem.
In honour of Remo Camerota’s work and to establish a new standard for the commissioning of artists, he will receive 30% of the proceeds, donating the other 70%.
40% of each sale will be distributed directly to individuals in extreme poverty by the Botswana Red Cross Society.
In total, Leyline will receive 30% of the proceeds to fund the development and administration of its altruistic platform.
“Our shared goal for this auction is to create sustainable passive income for individuals in need and create a compounding effect for impoverished communities,” says Jeremy Dela Rosa, founder and CEO of Leyline.
The proceeds that go to the Botswana Red Cross Society will be used to buy ‘Internet/NFT Starter Kits’. A smartphone, solar battery charger, and data plan will be included in these kits. Teams from Botswana Red Cross Society are on the ground directly supporting communities and will identify and continue to provide support to the recipients. As a result, recipients are able to share their experiences with the NFT and Leyline communities while earning more rewards and NFTs.
“A $350 starter kit per family can literally transform lives. The more funds we raise, the more individuals we can help. Please join us on our quest to eradicate poverty and rewrite the rules of the economy to reward empathy and compassion!” adds Dela Rosa, founder and CEO of Leyline.

The auction begins on June 18th at 9 am ET and concludes on June 25th at 12 pm ET. A collection of 6 NFT art pieces from Remo Camerota has been donated to benefit the cause.
