Johnny Depp donates $800,000 from NFTs sale

Johnny Depp NFT collection on OpenSea features images of several figures that Depp calls “friends and heroes.”

Johnny Depp has donated nearly $800,000 (£666,530) to three hospitals and a charity through his NFT art sale.

As promised, the money raised was split between Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, The Footprint Coalition and The Los Angeles Children’s Hospital Charity.

One of the four organizations receiving a donation is the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, to which Amber Heard had promised a donation, after her divorce – and didn’t honour.
