National Day of Action Banner
As a part of Citizen Effect’s CitizenGulf: National Day of Action JESS3 was approached by host Social Media Club of DC to design an illustrated banner of the Gulf — clean and beautiful, the way we would like it to look once again. The banner served as the backdrop for CitizenGulf’s DC National Day of Action on August 25, 2010 — a day which was selected nationally to align with the week of the fifth anniversary of Katrina.
The benefit was held to raise funds to help fishing families find a new, more sustainable future by providing educational resources for their children. On this day, 20 cities across the United States organized local events and collectively raised over $9,000 — $1,600 of which was raised by the DC event alone.
The banner continues to reside at the Citizen Effect headquarters in Washington, DC as a result of their “highest bidder” status during the silent auction.
