BBR 2022 CreateAthon

At BBR Creative, our purpose is to deliver goodwill and growth to the businesses we serve, the people we employ and the communities in which we live. To benefit our community in ways specific to our expertise, we’ve partnered with CreateAthon in order to increase marketing access for local nonprofits.

CreateAthon is a national organization whose mission is to champion effective, nonprofit marketing through pro bono “creative marathons.” Did we really say marathons? Yes, we did — but it’s not the kind you think! 

CreateAthon is a 24-hour marketing blitz where participating agencies cease regular operations to focus their time and talents on marketing for nonprofits in the community. From campaign concepts to strategic recommendations, collateral design, social media development and more, there’s a lot we can accomplish in 24 hours!

In alignment with our corporate giving philosophy, we are specifically selecting to support organizations who focus on family & community welfare, healthcare services, education, youth programs or the arts.

Nonprofits are selected prior to the event, giving representatives time to visit the agency, meet the team, and discuss their organizations’ unique marketing needs. Since our first event in 2019, we’ve served nine nonprofit organizations in Louisiana, donating over $382,000 in marketing services!

BBR’s CreateAthon event is September 22 – 23, 2022 where all deliverables will be produced and presented to the selected nonprofits.
