Jan. 25-27 super service event will provide more than $1.5 million to area non-profits.
48in48 is kicking off 2019 with its first annual 48in48 Super Service event presented by the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee and Delta Air Lines. The signature 48-hour event will mobilize marketing and technology volunteers to serve nonprofits in the Atlanta community by building 48 non-profit websites in 48 hours. The 48in48 Super Service event will take place the weekend prior to the Big Game and will be held at and hosted by Atlanta Tech Village on January 25-27, 2019.
“The Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee is focused on supporting initiatives that have the highest impact on our city,” said Carl Adkins, executive director of the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee. “The 48in48 Super Service event provides the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee with an opportunity to deliver much-needed services to local non-profits.”
Through the event, participating non-profits will benefit from $25,000 worth of high-quality professional websites and digital marketing tools, all donated by skilled 48in48 marketing and technology volunteers. These tools will empower the non-profits to be more successful in achieving their missions and to nurture valuable relationships with those they serve and those who support their efforts.
“Over the past four years, Delta Air Lines has supported 48in48 in its growth and achievement of serving more than 700 non-profits and creating more than $19 million of impact,” said Tad Hutcheson, vice president of community engagement with Delta Air Lines. “We’re thrilled to help launch the inaugural 48in48 Super Service event in partnership with the Atlanta Super Bowl Host Committee.”
Individual and team volunteers will provide skilled support to the participating non-profits throughout the 48-hour event. In addition to creating websites, they will provide needed digital marketing support in the form of social media training, blog resources, logos, design services, content writing and learning opportunities.
“We believe in improving society through skills based on volunteerism, education and service, and we do it using the heart and talent of marketing and technology professionals,” said Adam Walker, co-founder of 48in48.
A few of the 48 non-profits participating in this year’s Super Service event include the Ovie Mughelli Foundation, Atlanta Autism Consortium and Future Foundation.
