PetDrops NFTs

Everyone can benefit from NFTs and
have a positive impact too!

NFTs have potential for fundraising. Complexity and geek-speak is a barrier to many impact entrepreneurs, companies, NPOs, and regular people in creating NFTs for fundraising.

PetDrops is an Edutech experience powered by Impactoverse that teaches how to mint an NFT. It offers a low-risk, fun way to dip a toe in the NFT ocean while helping animals in need.

We’ll be offering two ways to participate in our creator community:
1) A DIY portal — Immortalize your pet for all eternity in an NFT, while helping other animals! Petdrops DIY will teach anyone how to create an NFT, share the news with your friends, and list your NFT for sale with proceeds benefitting animal welfare NPOs.

2) A DFY service — pressed for time? Allergic to tech but love animals? Our “done for you” service is for creators, NPOs, influencers, and companies that want to join the PetDrops impact community but don’t want to actually mint the NFT.

We also serve schools and STEM projects who want to host team NFT drops, giving students a safe, fun community to learn about NFTs, kind of like the Lemonade Stand project for NFTs. And with PetDrops NFT sales, we also support animal welfare organizations.

Meet Noleen Mariappen

I’ve been driven by a desire to make the world a better place for as long as I can remember. I recall having to submit a poem for a poetry competition when I was 9 years old, and while everyone else wrote about playtime and best friends, my poem was about the plight of a homeless person. Perhaps it came from experiencing the tough times and knowing that there were others who had it so much tougher, I always felt a need to help others, and improve circumstances. I initially wanted to be field journalist, with the intention of sharing the the stories of others so that the world might pay attention and help.
 I soon realised that I didn’t have the stomach to bear the horrors and neither did I have the personality that could stand back and do nothing. I changed paths and moved into the arena of business, specifically organizational development and psychology. 
Business came naturally to me and while management consultancy was a great option, the inner push to do more good steered me in the direction of working for non-profit projects. I quickly realised that the space in which I could have the most impact was in the world of business, for impact. I started consulting in this area, supporting with strategies and implementation for impact through the years, working across industries and sectors. 
I then went on to set up a social enterprise, working toward supporting non profits in a more strategic and sustainable way and hold a number of advisory positions with impact enterprises and non-profits.  I have seen first hand the great strides made, but also how emerging technologies, resources and trends leave not just populations behind, but also those who are capable of supporting and facilitating sustainable development. 
The digital divide is increasing and the more that this continues, the more I believe that we lose the ability to harness the power of collaboration, with technology as a facilitator, to build and scale impact in a way that can truly move the needle on social and environmental challenges.

My interest in Impact started way back when in the late 1980s after seeing an article in the LA Times about Muhammad Yunus’ fledgling Grameen Bank. From that time on, I began to look for ways to leverage my marketing background to source and start Impact projects.

I was active in Austin and Northern California working with social business groups, opportunity access for women and minorities, community sustainability, Slow Money,
Alongside this passion, I’ve also always been fascinated with using internet technology to scale Impact, working in web design in the early days (HTML 1.0 anyone?) and later as a videographer, editor, video producer and online marketing consultant. 
I met Noleen in a virtual accelerator for female entrepreneurs in 2016. Over the years we kept in touch. Noleen saw the posts on Linkedin from my new blog Web3-4Us, and it turns out she was thinking about a new venture focused on impact. We had a call and the rest, as they say, is history…in the making. 
Launching Impactoverse feels a bit like coming home just in time to jump off the cliff again. 
I’m thrilled beyond words to be working with someone of Noleen’s integrity and caliber, on a project with so much space to create and scale IMPACT! 
IMPACTful moment: I’ve had many but one of the most memorable was meeting Muhummad Yunus at a small community breakfast in East Austin in the late 1990s, before he became famous. We had a brief conversation, exchanged business cards, and even shared an email exchange afterward. That business card has been a talisman ever since.
