#EPUnidos non-profit creation
Following the shooting that took place in my hometown of El Paso, TX in August 2019, three friends and I gathered together to found a non-profit organization with the goal of raising money for the victims and families affected by the tragedy.
I was in charge of designing the logo that was to be used on t-shirts, tank tops, and stickers that were sold to the community. Additionally, I ran all social media and marketing efforts as well as assisted in planning and distribution of sales.
In the end, we were able to raise over $6,000 that was donated to the El Paso Community Foundation Victim Relief Fund.
While I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my community, my heart still aches for the victims and their families. However, watching how the people of El Paso came together in the face of hatred to form an even stronger community made me proud to call this city my home.
Unidos, somos fuertes. Unidos, somos El Paso.
