DNA Creative Communications Provides Free Marketing to Three Upstate Non-profits in 24 Hours

DNA Creative Communications (DNA), a Greenville public relations and marketing firm, announces Greer Community Ministries, Greenville County Youth Orchestras and REACH Upstate as the 2013 Upstate CreateAthon participants. The 24-hour event will be held on October 24 & 25, 2013.

“DNA has always been heavily invested in the nonprofit community,” said Debbie Nelson, president and founder of DNA Creative Communications. “CreateAthon will give us the chance to help three more local organizations enhance their communications platforms while building the teamwork and testing the sleep of our creative thinkers at DNA.”

CreateAthon is a 24-hour, work-around the clock creative blitz during which communications firms across the world provide nonprofit design services on a pro bono basis. Since the program’s creation in 1998, 80 agencies internationally have participated in the CreateAthon network, holding CreateAthon events in their respective markets.

Greer Community Ministries, Greenville County Youth Orchestras and REACH were all selected in a through application and interview process during August and September. The three participating non-profits will benefit from DNA’s marketing and communication services and receive a final project at the end of the 24-hour work period.

National CreateAthon pro bono week will be held on October 20 – 26 this year. The effort has impacted more than 1,275 nonprofit organizations, delivering 3,000 projects valued at more than $15 million. For more information on CreateAthon, visit their website.
