ATLANTA, January 18, 2019 – 48in48 kicks off 2019 with the first annual 48in48 Super Service event presented by 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 Jan. 25-27, 2019.
“48in48 is an organization with a uniquely impactful and sustainable initiative. Participation in 48in48 is important to the growth of our communities and offers our employees the opportunity to use their professional skills for good,” said Mike Fuller, technology director, State Farm. “State Farm is very excited to help launch the inaugural 48in48 Super Service event and provide a big impact to the Atlanta community.”
Through the event, participating nonprofits 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.”
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.
