Web3 news, June 29: DAO raises money for abortion rights groups, celebrities step up web3 game

COWGIRLDAO pledges to donate $3M to abortion rights group

Molly Dickson, an artist and co-founder of COWGIRLDAO, was deeply disturbed by the news of the leaked draft of the Supreme Court’s opinion over Roe v. Wade in May and decided to act. She launched a COWGIRLDAO and a 10,000 NFT collection to help abortion rights groups.

Today, Blockworks reported the DAO partnered with an on-chain philanthropy platform Endaoment and pledged to donate $3 million from the NFT collection sales “when they have been fully minted.”

“I think we’re seeing less neutrality [in Web3] in the last few days, which I think it’s great because there’s so much potential for Web3 to be an additional level of fundraising beyond what we have already,” Molly Dickson shared with Blockworks.
