TRIO is the Official Lowcountry CreateAthon Agency
Over the past five years, we’ve had the honor of helping many Lowcountry nonprofit organizations through our participation in CreateAthon – a 24-hour, work-around-the-clock creative blitz during which TRIO provides marketing and creative services to nonprofit organizations on a pro-bono basis. This year, on September 20-21, TRIO’s office will close for 24 hours of creative insanity. We’re excited to announce we will be working with four Lowcountry nonprofits: The Green Heart Project, HALOS, Healing Farms, Respite Care Charleston, and one national nonprofit, One Less Meal, to provide them with a fresh set of marketing tools.
Giving back to the community has always been at the very essence of TRIO. From the start, our philosophy has dictated that we truly have a responsibility to give back – a responsibility to make a difference. We feel honored to be able to donate our time each year to five unique and deserving nonprofits, many which have little or no marketing budgets.
CreateAthon was the brainchild of Teresa Coles, founder of RIGGS advertising agency in Columbia, South Carolina. What began in 1998 as a way for one group of creative professionals to give back has now grown into a global marathon that takes place every September. Numerous companies have joined the exclusive CreateAthon family, holding CreateAthon events in their cities around the globe. Collectively, CreateAthon agencies have benefited more than 1,275 nonprofit organizations with more than 3,100 projects exceeding $15 million in value. TRIO has the distinct privilege of being the official CreateAthon agency for the Lowcountry region of South Carolina.
If you’re in the area, drop by to show your support and have dinner with the team Thursday, September 20.
