Julian Lennon is auctioning off Beatles and John Lennon memorabilia as NFTs with a portion of the proceeds going to charity.

Julian has partnered with the music NFT marketplace YellowHeart and Julien’s Auctions for this unique event that will feature “a selection of rare and meaningful pieces from [Julian’s] intimate collection” including “items of his father’s as well as gifts and memorabilia from his own life and childhood,” according to the auction house.

Among the NFTs up for bid include the following:

-“Hey Jude” Notes written by Paul McCartney 1:1 NFT (starting at $30,000)
-Afghan Coat from Magical Mystery Tour 1:1 NFT (starting at $6,000)
-Black Cape Worn by John Lennon from the movie Help! – 1:1 NFT (starting at $8,000)

Julian said in a statement on the NFT auction, “As an artist, I have great respect for all that my father accomplished in his career. As a son, I hold dear the good memories I have of my time with him. I feel incredibly lucky to live in a day and age where innovation allows me to share such personal pieces of my Lennon family history. Through this NFT collection, I’m able to grant exclusive access to special items that I cherish and carry on the legacy of my father in a new way.”

Julien’s Auctions notes, “A portion of the sale proceeds from this NFT collection will benefit The White Feather Foundation (TWFF), which will use the funds to purchase carbon removal from Nori in the form of Nori Carbon Removal Tonnes (NRTs). Each NRT represents one tonne of CO2-equivalent heat-trapping gas that has been removed from our atmosphere and stored in a terrestrial, subsurface, industrial or aquatic reservoir. Nori currently achieves this by working with farmers across the United States to adapt regenerative practices that increase carbon removal and sequestration. Once the carbon removal purchases have been made, TWFF will make public the Nori certificate of carbon removal which provides all information regarding the carbon removal transaction.”
