A total of 40 images featuring places and memories in Ukraine before the invasion are available as NFTs. The collection includes images by Ukrainian photographers who have been documenting their cities, culture, and way of life to protect the memories and beauty of pre-war Ukraine.

Vaughan Townsend, Executive Creative Director at Performics Mercerbell says: “To support our Ukrainian team members, we have banded together a small community of local Ukrainian photographers and supporters to help to keep the happy memory of Ukraine alive during these sad times. That’s why we have uploaded this collection of photographs on the blockchain to serve as a permanent time capsule capturing the beauty of pre-war Ukraine.”

Kostia Liakhov, Senior Art Director at Performics Mercerbell, adds: “We wanted this collection to include not only landmarks but also nursery schools, parks where dogs are walked, ordinary homes that people are so proud of. Some of these photos might be the last records we have of these places. All funds raised will become an indestructible crypto donation to the Ukrainian people – a reminder that the Ukrainian spirit cannot be broken.”

The Indestructible Donation was created and built by Kostia Liakhov and Sam Cable at Performics Mercerbell, and is also accepting dollar donations to support colleagues from Ukraine here
