Kragen is perhaps more widely known for his efforts with "We Are The World' and "Hands Across America." Before his passing, he began to organize "Hands for Humanity." This will be his final charitable effort with contributions from the effort for charities including WhyHunger, UNICEF Ukraine, F Cancer / Generaize, NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council), the Ocean Conservancy, as well as the Ken Kragen Foundation.

Hands For Humanity is an NFT-based act of philanthropy and a first of its kind with artists, influencers, and organizations coming together to help fulfill Kragen's continued efforts to help the environment, feed the hungry and help to unite the planet. 10,000 digital hands will be created, and all are welcome to participate.
