RIO GRANDE, TX / ACCESSWIRE / December 3, 2021 / Culturally renowned digital artist Marcelo Cantu (@marcelocantuphoto) has partnered with Heart Water (@heartwater) and United Nations Refugee Agency Goodwill Ambassador Kat Graham (@katgraham) to create Melting Hearts, an NFT project expressing feminine beauty, with 40% of mint proceeds being donated to provide clean drinking water for a community in Rio Grande Valley, Texas. The collection will debut during Art Basel, Miami's own iconic art show, and release on Niftybase, a platform for creators, brands, and builders to easily launch NFT collections.

The Melting Hearts Drop

In character with the other visually captivating artwork created by Marcelo, Melting Hearts features powerful feminine figures depicting the emotions of the world caught in a climate crisis, engrossed in the fluidity of water. Melting Hearts will donate 40% of all mint proceeds of the 4,040 set, one-of-one PFP drop to the Heart Water Foundation and provide relief for resource-restricted communities in South Texas. The number of NFTs created for the collection is representative of the 40% of mint proceeds being donated to charity.

The water is crisp and delicious when compared to leading bottled waters, which are mostly filtered tap water, polluted spring water, or from contaminated sources containing chemicals.
