A place where creativity thrives and benefits others. This is how we most often describe redpepper. Not only do we believe that everyone is uniquely creative, but we also believe that we can use this creativity to solve business and worldly problems. There’s no better example of putting that mantra to work than through our own hosting of CreateAthon each September.
Now hopefully if you’ve spent any time around redpepper, you’re familiar with CreateAthon, but, if not, make sure to check out the 2011 experience here. CreateAthon is a magical time here at redpepper. One when we close up the regular shop in order to spend 24, ahem, more like 36 solid hours donating our time, talents and marketing services to give back to area underdog nonprofits. There’s no time for anything else during these hours, not even sleep! Only dedication to seeing these deserving nonprofits succeed. And we love every second of it.
That’s why it makes us happy to announce that the 6th Annual CreateAthon event is set for September 20-21, 2012. Better yet, we’re now accepting applications from local nonprofits to become one of the CreateAthon clients this year. To apply, visit our Facebook page, here. But hurry, applications are due by July 6th.
Over the years redpepper has donated more than $450,000 worth of services to help more than 30 non-profits share their stories and effectively market their organizations, enabling them to raise contributions and community support. In efforts to further grow our impact and effectiveness, we are also increasing the muscle behind our own Land of Cause fund. CreateAthon is Land of Cause’s largest event, but after (and before) September, LOC continues the work to raise funds and create marketing tools for deserving nonprofits.
We admit that we have a few superheroes of our own, but we couldn’t have CreateAthon without a full community of superheroes. That includes you. If you’d like to help out by donating supplies (i.e. paper, printing, media space, food, extra hands) for our creative blitz this year, please contact Joni at redpepperland dot com. For any other questions regarding CreateAthon, feel free to give Caroline (at redpepperland dot com) a shout.
