Createathon Offers Probono Services to Nonfprofits for Second Year


CAT_07_logo_PMS376Williamsburg, VA — Proximo Marketing Strategies invites local nonprofit organizations to submit applications for its annual CreateAthon® event, to be held October 23-24, 2014. CreateAthon is a 24-hour blitz during which Proximo Marketing Strategies provides creative marketing services to nonprofit organizations on a pro bono basis. This year marks the 2nd consecutive year that Proximo Marketing Strategies has held this community service event.

Since Proximo Marketing Strategies became a CreateAthon partner, Proximo Marketing Strategies has donated creative marketing services to five nonprofit organizations in Hampton Roads, producing a total of six projects. Fee value of the work produced has been estimated at $7,848.00, all provided at little to no cost to nonprofits.

“CreateAthon represents some of the most important work we do all year,” said Will Melton, co-founder of Proximo Marketing Strategies. “Given the budget challenges nonprofits have had in the last few years, we believe the difference CreateAthon can make is greater than ever. For us, it’s a pleasure to be able to put our talent to work for social good.”

The firm is equally confident the national CreateAthon nonprofit organization will positively impact nonprofits across the country. Since the program’s expansion from a single market to a national effort in 2002, over 95+ agencies and creative groups in the US, Canada and Puerto Rico have held CreateAthon events in their cities. The effort has benefited over 1,300+ nonprofit organizations with 3,500+ projects valued at over $16.5 million.
