Former First Lady Melania Trump is selling a non-fungible token (NFT) of her “cobalt blue eyes,” her office announced on Thursday.
The watercolor image of Trump’s eyes called “Melania’s Vision” by fashion artist Marc-Antoine Coulon will cost 1 Solana, a cryptocurrency worth about $180 as of Thursday morning.
A portion of the proceeds will go to support children in foster care, according to her website.
“I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts, and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative,” Trump said in a statement. “Through this new technology-based platform, we will provide children computer science skills, including programming and software development, to thrive after they age out of the foster community.”
A purchase of the NFT also comes with an audio recording from Trump “with a message of hope,” the statement said.
Trump also said she will be releasing more NFTs “in regular intervals.” This first NFT is available until December 31, she announced.

“Excited for this new venture, which combines my passion for art and commitment to helping our Nation’s children fulfill their own unique American Dream,” she wrote on Twitter.
In her time as first lady, Trump spearheaded the Be Best initiative, a campaign focused on the youth and their wellbeing. Since leaving the White House in January, the former first lady has reportedly been “happy and relaxed” with the change of pace at her new residence, former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
