In a span of 30 days, Joey Yang’s online campaign, Make America Colorful Again, received 260 donations and raised a total of $7,344. All proceeds benefit IIBA and the Bay Area immigrant communities we serve. Joey’s goal was to help immigrants secure their lives in the U.S. by becoming American citizens.
“We’re a stronger nation when we look out for each other, no matter where we come from,” Joey says. “America is great because it’s a colorful place. Let’s keep it that way.” Joey’s philanthropic campaign received media coverage from Newsweek, East Bay Express, and his original drawings are currently being displayed at Transmission and Embark art galleries.
The International Institute of the Bay Area would like to thank Joey and the 260 individuals who backed the campaign.
