Illustrated Impact is a non-profit newsletter, website and general movement, to engage, educate and inspire. Compassion is at the root of all progress and we aim to foster that through illustration and information.
Launched on December 1, 2016, the goal of Illustrated Impact's first campaign, #DecemberDonate, was to promote thoughtful holiday gift-giving. Each day of December, subscribers received a carefully chosen organization promoting a safe environment for all Americans. Each cause was lovingly illustrated by a different artist.
The following months have centered around a different, pressing issue. January was immigration, February was Black History Month, March was Women's Month, April was Earth Month, May was Family Month and June is Pride Month.
By sharing stories and information, we hope to provide a (beautifully illustrated) entry point for an inclusive dialogue about the issues which most divide our country today. As always, we provide an action in form of a great donation suggestion, but it's most important to us to promote unity and acceptance through thought and conversation.

Illustrated Impact was founded by Susanne Lamb, Lorraine Nam and Laura Korzon. We met at RISD where we lived together while studying illustration. We are so excited to launch Illustrated Impact, which is formed from our shared love of illustration and strong desire to find the best ways to help worthwhile causes.
Susanne Lamb is an illustrator and print designer living in Brooklyn, NY. As someone who is constantly inspired by other illustrators, she wanted to find a way to apply the skills of her peers to raise awareness and understanding about the many causes that need support.
Laura Korzon is a designer based out of Lancaster, PA. She is the owner of Paper Jane Studio, which specializes in illustration and print design for stationery, apparel, and gifts. She has always focused on making work that brings people joy and is excited to make work that makes a difference.
