Tiny Island Partners with Unilever's Lifebuoy and Ape Kids Club to Design NFTs for NGO

Unilever's Lifebuoy, Singapore Tiny Island Productions collaborates with NFT creators Ape Kids Club to craft new NFT designs inspired by Unilever's Award Winning Lifebuoy H for handwashing campaign.

Unilever's Lifebuoy division and Tiny Island Productions have worked closely together on many projects for more than eight years. To enhance the rollout of the campaign, Tiny Island brought onboard their NFT partner Ape Kids Club, whose track record in successful NFT launches will be an important keystone of the campaign.

The campaign will tap on Tiny Island Production's expertise in NFT and metaverse space, Unilever's brand influence, and AKC's experience in the NFT field to explore possibilities of doing more good with emerging Web 3 technologies potential of fund raising for good.

Tiny Island Productions has always been in the forefront of technology when it comes to content creation. As part of their expansion into Web 3.0, they have signed a MOU with Huawei Cloud in December 2021 to develop Tiny Island Universe, a Metaverse Themepark. They have also signed MOU with Morpheus Labs where both parties will explore collaboration in the blockchain solution development such as metaverse based on the solutions and products offered by both parties. In months to come, Tiny Island Productions will be announcing collaborations with more partners with regards to Web 3.0, NFT and Metaverse.

"We thought it would be a great idea to take design inspiration from Unilever's Lifebuoy's H for Handwashing Concept to create this new Ape Kids Club H4H NFT collection that will help to raise funds for social missions. We're also honored to have Ape Kids Club our long-term NFT partner, who brings to the campaign their invaluable experience from their previous successful NFT launches. Coupled with our expertise in NFT and Metaverse, we want to show how NFTs can be a powerful tool to mobilize and raise support for worthwhile causes." ~ David Kwok, CEO of Tiny Island Productions

Soap brand Lifebuoy sees the campaign as a natural extension of their award-winning global handwashing campaign. The company has helped more than 1 billion people adopt better handwashing habits to help keep germs at bay. Through Lifebuoy's social mission programs and communications, the brand has worked with over 50 partners across more than 30 countries, enabling communities to develop better handwashing habits, improve hygiene and protect against illness.

"We need to separate the alerts from the noise surrounding NFT, crypto and Web 3.0. We can only do this by working with experts in this field, who can ensure Lifebuoy's social mission of improving handwashing behaviors of people around the world will generate significant support. Lifebuoy recognizes the opportunity in this new digital meta world. We are eager to learn from partners, creators, and specialists to create a Betterverse - a place where we can ensure good exists." ~ Triveni Rajagopal, Personal Care Digital Transformation Lead, Unilever.

Li and Kun Vic, both founder of Ape Kids Club, looks forward to the project. "6 months ago we successfully launched Ape Kids Club, a collection of 9999 unique Ape Kids on blockchain. And today we are very honoured to take inspiration from Lifebuoy to design ideas in the Web 3.0 space. As part of the brand's social mission, we want to create value using blockchain to raise awareness and funds for worthy, real-life social causes."

NFT drops on 15th October - Global Handwashing Day. All donations will go to our NGO Partner's crypto wallet.
