CreateAthon is a 24-hour, work-around the clock creative blitz during which marketing, advertising and public relations firms provide nonprofit marketing services on a pro bono basis. Since the program’s creation by Riggs Partners in 1998, 73 agencies have participated in the CreateAthon network, holding CreateAthon events in their respective markets. It’s an effort that has impacted more than 1,100 non-profit organizations, delivering 2,500 projects valued at more than $11 million.
Locally, the NEPA CreateAThon team provides marketing and creative services to nonprofit organizations in Luzerne, Lackawanna, Lehigh, Monroe and Wyoming counties (other counties can be considered on a special needs basis.) The CreateAthon volunteers include local artists, writers, web designers and coders and others.
