Say What? Yep, It’s Time For CreateAthon 2012!

If you know anything about Ninja Central, you know that every year the Ninjas at Think Tank donate their time to a nationwide event called CreateAthon. CreateAthon is a 24-hour creative design blitz where we, and agencies throughout the United States, work to provide pro bono marketing services to local nonprofits.

This year CreateAthon will be held from September 20-21 and we couldn’t be more stoked.

Even though this is our fourth year participating in CreateAthon, we are still like kids anticipating Christmas morning. We are so excited for this coming week where we will be having our development meetings with our chosen nonprofits – The Children’s Museum, The Lynn F. Solon Foundation, 501 Connect, Partners 4 Pets, With Change in Mind and the Madison County Child Advocacy Center.

We’ll be listening to their stories – their hopes and dreams for their organizations – and we’ll begin our creative briefs, our storyboarding, our work schedules and plans in preparation for the big 24-hour design blitz on the 20th.

Oh, and we’ll be planning some dance-offs too. (Oh, you know we will!)

Be sure to tune in and watch our week of development meetings, our process and so much more on our Facebook and Twitter pages. Also be sure to check out our live-streaming video on the day of CreateAthon – you never know what shenanigans you might catch as we try to stay awake through the night!

Oh, and, ahem…the Ninjas won’t kick you out if you decide to stop by and bring us refreshments….or movies….or dance music….or comfy socks…..or Red Bull….or….
