Nov 8-9, 2012: CreateAthon in action
I have had the pleasure of meeting two very inspirational ladies, Kim and Natalia, from a marketing company called Flipside. They are high energy people – passionate about their work, their families, their hobbies and giving back to the community.
They have joined a network of 73 creative agencies across the US and Canada to provide pro-bono marketing services to Charities and not-for-profit groups. Started in 1998 by founders Cathty Monetti and Teresa Coles, CreateAthon is a 24-hour creative marathon that gives the power of creativity, marketing, and online efficiencies to charities that need a leg up in attracting much needed funding and support.
Flipside shares the inside scoop on their blog.
