Who are Friends of patron?
We are team of volunteers who work on post-war Ukraine recovery since mid of 2022!
250,000 sq. km of Ukraine territory is polluted by mines (Jan 2023 stat).
We are focused on mines danger (anti-personnel mines, anti-tank mines) topic and started our activity with training in the Bucha District Schools. So, children are aware about proper behavior once meet danger object.
However, we would like to scale the geography to the wider Ukraine and cover more mine-related directions.
We plan to issue 3 related collections to raise the funds and implement all our ambitious plans!
To make mine danger trainings more engaging for the children – we handled a competition of children’s drawings.
We were excited to get 287 drawings. And each has its own story.
That inspired us to create the next 3 collections!

That is interesting and a bit sad story.
During mine danger trainings in schools we handled draw context to make it more interactive and interesting for kids.
We’ve collected children’s 287 drawings with exiting stories.
It was hard to keep tears while looking thru all of them and reading stories. How children envision our bright future and who will help us to renovate the country after the victory!
All that inspired our artist to create NFT collections.
No, that is not just digitized kids drawings.
That is canonical NFT art!
Every NFT owner:
- Gets unique picture from the collection that was made in the heart of Ukraine between air raid sirens and blackouts during the war.
- Gets a chance to receive airdrop from the next collection. Each next collection is smaller, more unique, and more expensive.
- Become friend of Patron and real friend of Ukraine by supporting post-war renovation.
- Become eligible for any online or offline activities we might plan for the community.
Patron is the most titled and famous dog on Earth!
That is extremely hard to plan longtime during the war.
We have a lot of ambitious plans, but all depends on the situation.
Few points primary points we have for 2023:
- Scale the mine danger trainings geography to the whole Ukraine.
- Create online mine-danger training for kids, so every child in Ukraine (or from all impacted countries) will be aware about related dangers!
- Open new directions and activities, like sponsor territory demining, prosthetic support.
- Work with international organizations to get grands, sponsorships for our projects.
Now we are working on the volunteering basis. Means, we sponsor all activities with own money and time.
That is fine for small cities, but definitely not enough for scaling.
All funds would be spent on:
- 50% donated right away for the Ukraine renovation
- 50% will be used for own charity foundation start.
See more info in roadmap and in other FAQ topics.
Indeed, there is no Discord server for our project for now. We just don’t have enough time and people to manage it. However, we plan to create it later, after first collection public mint.
