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 programâ€™s creation by Riggs Partners in 1998, 73 agencies have participated in the CreateAthon network, holding CreateAthon events in their respective markets. Itâ€™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.
