Crypto.com and the Red Cross Red Crescent join forces to support people affected by the crisis in Ukraine. The humanitarian crisis in Ukraine and neighbouring countries requires our collective support. Within a few days of the onset of the crisis, Crypto.com made a USD 1 million donation to the Red Cross Red Crescent, ensuring that the funds would be used to provide humanitarian relief to those affected.

Since then, events have escalated and so has the need for aid to help people suffering hardship. In partnership with the Red Cross Red Crescent, we are launching a campaign to raise awareness and funds to support their vitally important work. Our in-house team has created a TV commercial which will air multiple times during the live broadcast of the 94th Academy Awards in the United States, and we will also raise awareness on all of our social platforms.
Viewers will be directed to our campaign page, where they can donate in one of three ways: with crypto, fiat, or by buying an NFT. Crypto.com will be matching all donations up to USD 1 million.
How to Donate
You can donate directly to help people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, either in cryptocurrency using Crypto.com Pay, or by credit and debit card on the Red Cross Red Crescent website. The donations will be matched by us.
Alternatively, you can buy an NFT (using a credit/debit card or crypto) from our campaign collection. All proceeds will go to the Red Cross Red Crescent and we will match your purchase with a donation. The NFTs are available from 25 March 10:00 AM UTC to 31 March 23:59 PM UTC on the drop page.
How Will the Donations be Used?
Your donation will go to the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, in support of people affected by the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. The funds will be used to provide food, water, medicine, shelter, and other essential items.
Other examples of aid provided by the Red Cross Red Crescent include distributing wounded and first aid kits to hospitals, with each kit treating 50 people, providing 1,000s of litres of drinking water where supply has been disrupted, temporary accommodation along the borders, and bedding, clothes, and SIM cards so that people who were displaced can stay in touch with their loved ones.
