Trevor Lawrence releases Adidas X NFTs to support Jacksonville charities
|Thursday, May 6, 2021, 11:43 AM- -|
Trevor Lawrence mania is a full go in Jacksonville.
Lawrence understands his current spotlight and is trying to help out his new community by donating to various local charities.
Adidas partnered with Lawrence and made a limited run of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) featuring Lawrence that said 'First Pick since Day 1.'
The NFTs were available for only one hour on Thursday morning at $100 each, and they sold 878 of them, which raised funds around $87,000 for charities.
“I’m thrilled at the chance to use my platform and partnerships to help support the community that will soon be my home,” Lawrence said in a statement. “It is important for me to give back to this city that has already given me so much, and I am excited to find a way to involve the fans in this special commemorative moment."
There is also an auction for a one-of-a-kind NFT that includes a physical copy of the card and a signed pair of Lawrence's Adidas cleats.
The current auction price is $10,000 with over 10 hours to go.
