The Wishing Tree: Childhood Memories is the first Romanian fantasy family film released in the last 30 years in Romania. It is a film destined for the young ones, as well as for the whole family, with an immediate impact on the lives of those who suffer. The film, inspired by real events, tells the story of Mara and her friends, who set out on a fantastic adventure leading into the world of one of the most famous Romanian children’s books: Childhood Memories written by Ion Creangă.
The movie will be released in Romanian theaters starting 25 March 2022. All the funds generated by the film will be donated to the HOSPICE Casa Speranţei (HOSPICE House of Hope) Foundation, the largest NGO in Romania, that’s offering free palliative care for adults and children suffering from an incurable illness.

NFT stands for “Non-Fungible Token”. Goods can be fungible or non-fungible. Fungible goods are those which are determinable by number, measure, or weight so that they can be substituted for each other in the performance of an obligation. Money represents fungible goods. NFTs are non-fungible goods, i.e. individually determined goods that cannot be replaced by other goods. They are unique.
All NFT holders will be whitelisted for the next NFT collection, “Alpaca”, representing Mișu the (P)alpaca, the HOSPICE Casa Speranței mascot, a symbol of involvement, of small gestures that lead to a greater good and of good deeds done with a smile.
