12-hour make-a-thon to help nonprofits returns to Asheville Oct. 19

Press release from Make a Mark Asheville:

Last year we kicked off the inaugural Make a Mark Asheville Make-a-Thon by working with incredible makers and volunteers to serve 9 nonprofits across the city. The 2019 Asheville Make-a-Thon is back on October 19 at Hatch AVL, and will be led by Julie Obenauer and her team.

Some of our communities’ biggest problems are solved by nonprofits staffed almost entirely by volunteers. Their work deserves the best design, marketing, and technology, but these are far too often out of reach of these impactful organizations.

So for 12 hours, we gather the best designers and developers to work on projects for the most impactful organizations in the most creative and purposeful communities around the globe.

Read more on our blog or head over to our website to apply now. Applications are open until August 31.
