According to the fashion designer, who has over 6.2 million followers on Instagram only, the money, which will be collected from selling NFTs of the "#ReddressLebanon", which is emanating from the mesh that covered most wrecked and destroyed buildings in Beirut following the blast of August 4th, 2020, will go to IDRAAC, mental health NGO, that in return will be in favor of port blast victims and their families.

The blue, Zuhair Murad-designed dress is part of a campaign aimed at raising awareness about what happened to Beirut since the shocking port blast took place leaving over 7000 people injured and hundreds killed and helping Lebanese who are still suffering from the deadly explosion.
