Stand a chance to win a Hedgie of your own and have your artwork featured in our exciting new #NFTsWithPurpose collection!


We are reaching out to the autism and artistic communities to ask for drawings of SAM THE HEDGEHOG that we can use as part of our upcoming HEDGIE FUND NFT collection. You can enter in one of the following categories:

  1. Autistic kids (up to age 18)
  2. Autistic adults (older than 18)
  3. Artists – established artists who would like to support Sam
  4. Friends of Sam – anyone not covered by the above who would still really like to have a shot at drawing Sam…

Here are the character sheets of Sam (and his parents) from the film production:

The drawings that best embody Sam and his message of autism acceptance (NOT necessarily the drawings that copy our artwork the best) will be chosen and inserted as an extra special trait into the NFT collection (as shown above) and then sold to raise money for charities that support the autistic community (including A;SA) and to finish the SAM THE HEDGEHOG film.

On top of that, if your artwork is selected, you will receive your very own Hedgie NFT, worth 0.05 ETH (currently US$230 / R 3500) each!
