1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. What do these two numerical stats represent? They each signify how many minutes and seconds (plus many more) TRIO will work to produce marketing and creative services for Charleston nonprofits. On October 23, we will once again be working around-the-clock for our 8th Annual CreateAthon.
What is CreateAthon you ask? CreateAthon is the innovative marathon in which the TRIO team will generate free marketing strategies and creative deliverables for local nonprofits that have little or no marketing budget during National Pro-Bono Week (October 19-25). With more than 52 percent of nonprofits needing additional marketing help (without the additional funds), TRIO is happy to lend a hand and give back to our local community by furthering the impact these organizations can make.
