It’s the Halloween season! Whether you are planning to wear a costume trick-or-treating, celebrate dia de Los Muertos, or have a giant kite festival (yes, we know the traditions of all our art communities around the world) or none of the above, Endy has a big surprise for you.

A scare is born: The Spooktacular Endy NFT Collection

The Spooktacular Endy NFT Collection was made by the remarkable NFT artist Sammy Flores and is a 1/1 generative art NFT.

What melted Endy’s heart (and it will yours, too) was Sammy’s humanitarian approach and the whole idea behind the collection. By owning one of the Spooktacular Endy, you’ll be able to help those in need. A portion of the money collected from this collection will be donated to the Autism Community Network (ACN) in San Antonio, Texas. Imagine all those kids that deserve to have a cheerful Halloween.

Disclaimer: The Autism Community Network is a nonprofit, 501©3 agency serving Bexar County and surrounding counties in the state of Texas. Their mission is to maximize the potential of children with autism by providing early diagnosis for those with limited access while educating and empowering the community to support them.
