Local business BuildASign announced its fourth annual CreateAthon will take place Oct. 21 and 22, according to a news release from the business.
In celebration of National Pro Bono Week, CreateAthon is a 24-hour event where creative and marketing professionals from around Austin volunteer to provide nonprofits rebranding or marketing pro bono help.
BuildASign is an online printing provider that helps its customers create custom signage and home decor. It was founded in 2005 and is located at 11525a Stonehollow Drive, Ste. 100, Austin.
The business got involved in philanthropy in 2008 and has since donated more than $600,00 to more than 500 nonprofits, according to its website.
BuildASign plans to choose 10 nonprofits for the marathon. The nonprofits will be chosen based on its current fiscal year budget, its most recently filed IRS Form 990, an annual report and its logo and brand assets.
