Earthquake Relief

Within two days of the devastating earthquakes which struck near the Türkiye-Syria border on 6 February, 2023, we teamed up with UNHCR Australia to create and auction a bear designed to look like a UNHCR field worker.

We also created an open edition digital artwork inspired by the heartbreaking viral photo a teddy bear in the quake rubble. 

The two digital collectibles combined raised a combined total of $23,000 USD by 259 Okay Bears community members and saw a large amount of online engagement and support for people affected by the earthquakes.

"Your art auction was organised so quickly and efficiently and we are grateful to your wonderful community of supporters who gave so generously. The funds you raised have helped UNHCR deliver life-saving aid such as thermal blankets, tents and kitchen sets to people who’ve lost everything."
