Micah Johnson (ex-baseball player) has joined forces with the American Heart Association to promote NFTs. This initiative is part of American Heart Month. It aims to increase awareness about cardiovascular disease and promote healthier living for everyone.
“Aku’s Heart” The NFTs are a cartoon featuring a young black boy in an astronaut’s helmet. His nephew asked about whether astronauts could be black. This character was born. Tomorrow’s sale of NFTs, which will be on Mainfold.xyz (a platform for minting NFTs), will begin and end on February 4. Each piece will cost 0.03 ETH (or $47 at press time) and half of the proceeds will be donated towards the AHA.

This Campaign is Close to Micah Johnson
This initiative is dear to him because his grandfather died from the disease in 2015. He said, “With a family history of heart disease and the possibility that I can help drive awareness and hopefully solutions to my family and possibly even myself is incredibly humble.”
Raymond Vara is the volunteer chairperson of the AHA board and is enthusiastic about the project. “As American Heart Month kicks off, we are excited that Micah Johnson raises critical awareness in a new way.”Johnson “ This art project was started to inspire youth–something which the American Heart Association is passionately about, regardless of whether it’s encouraging them to live healthy lives or pursue science-based careers in medicine.
According to the AHA heart disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Stroke comes in second. According to global statistics, 60 million people are affected by heart disease each year. About 19 million people died from the disease in 2019 alone.
