She says the Christmas items are “filled with hope” and “inspired by the American experience and spirit.”

The former first lady is launching “The Christmas Star” exclusively on Her “American Christmas Collection” will be promoted through USA Memorabilia and will feature six traditional American Christmas ornaments, along with their redeemable 3D animated NFTs.

Melania Trump is using an “eco-friendly proof-of-stake blockchain protocol” for the NFTs named “Solana.” Non-fungible tokens are unique cryptographic tokens that exist on a blockchain and cannot be replicated.

Once an individual purchases and redeems one of the Christmas NFTs, they can display and save the artwork as a collectible. They can also resell it directly at a secondary marketplace.

“Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, celebrated with our families and loved ones,” Melania Trump told Fox News Digital in an interview. “This holiday will be a season filled with hope and inspiration.”

She says she is “grateful” and gives “thanks to the brave individuals who keep us safe at home and overseas.”

Melania Trump personally designed the limited-edition “Christmas Star” ornament and its accompanying NFT.

“My creative inspiration for the upcoming holiday season is hope, and naturally, the star embodies this spirit,” she commented. “My hope is for families across the world to use the Christmas Star ornament to inspire their loved ones with positive purpose, aspirations, and values as we enter the new year. This holiday season, remember to aim high to reach your full potential.”

The elegant brass ornaments, along with their NFTs, range in price from $35 to $45 and are made in the United States. Each features an engraving of the former first lady’s signature.

Part of the proceeds for the ornaments and NFTs will go to “Fostering the Future,” a “Be Best” initiative that awards educational opportunities and scholarships to foster children.

The first two scholarship recipients of the program started their college trek at Middle Tennessee State University and Oral Roberts University this semester.

The “Christmas Star” will be available for pre-order beginning Sept. 15 and the opportunity to buy it will end on Oct. 2. All ornaments purchased on or before Oct. 2 are guaranteed to be delivered before Christmas.

Melania Trump introduced her first NFT venture in 2021.

She also recently penned an op-ed for Fox News stating that education is the key to innovation and individual exceptionalism. Education and helping foster children have become a passion for the former first lady.

“Our schools provide the foundation necessary to develop one’s intellect to thrive within society. A wide-ranging education can deliver the potential of stable employment, ultimately supplying our students with the capabilities to realize financial autonomy. And education can, of course, drive innovation and elevate our communities, cities and great nation,” she wrote.

“We should provide foster children with educational resources so that they will have tools, an encouraging environment, and a community filled with people who care about their dreams,” Trump added.

She went on to elaborate about “Fostering the Future.”

“This semester, Fostering the Future’s first two scholarship recipients commence their college careers as freshmen at Oral Roberts University and Middle Tennessee State University. Both scholars will learn in a supportive environment, gaining knowledge critical to achieving job security in the technology sector. By providing access to a computer science education, these individuals will be prepared to enter the workforce and ultimately reach financial independence,” she noted.

“Fostering the Future, a Be Best initiative secures educational opportunities for children in the foster care community. Our ongoing commitment is critical. According to the National Foster Youth Institute, only 50 percent of foster children finish high school, and only three percent of former foster children obtain a college degree. Twenty percent of children in foster care will become homeless after aging out of the system, and only half will have gainful employment by the age of 24,” the former first lady wrote.
