was a blast working with everyone involved with CreateAThon in
2004. There was so much good work accomplished that it's hard
to believe it all got done so rapidly. Our volunteers in 2004
truly performed Herculean tasks and came through with some fantastic
creative solutions for our non-profit organizations. Wow! You
are all so tremendously gifted, it's a great honor working side
by side with you all. I hope you all look forward to doing it
again this year! Check out the scrapbook from 2004's CreateAThon.
You will be amazed, we did this all in 24 hours!

Sherry Kennell, paper specifications manager for Finch,
Pruyn & Co., Inc., a major premium paper mill, has made
a very generous donation to supply the CreateAThon non-profits with
the paper needed for the printing of their pieces at CRW Graphics for
We met with Sherry at Hypno on Thursday of last week
and she jumped on board immediately with excitement and geniune compassion
about the organizations that have been selected to recieve CreateAThon
services this year.
Said Sherry, "We are very involved in this type
of work. We're into community and strongly aware of our responsibility
to community. The company (Finch) as a whole feels so strongly about
it. It's part of our makeup. Our CEO started working as a hand in the
mill at age 17, and 45 years later has run every facet of that company,
and he is a fabulous man, and instills this feeling in all of us."
Big kudos to Finch and Sherry for stepping
up to the plate and offering their new line of papers for CreateThon.
We're really fortunate to have a paper partner like Finch, and proud
to name them as Official Paper of Philly Regional CreateAThon 2004.
All you designers and art directors out there, check
out Finchpaper.com and be sure
to specify Finch on your next printing project! It's
an awesome sheet, from a great company!

Hello! The applications have been agonized over, debated about, wrestled
with ad infinitum, and the final selections have been made. Read more
about it below. It was tough, but we think we have made good choices
that will impact our community. We encourage more organizations to apply
next year, and for others who applied this year, but were not selected,
to reapply. We can only accommodate so many organizations requests,
but we increased our count from 12 organizations of last year to 14
for this year.

DESIGN AGENCY CHOOSES ORGANIZATIONS TO
RECEIVE FREE CREATIVE SERVICES
MOORESTOWN, NJ — Fourteen non-profit
organizations from the tri-state area will be beneficiaries of advertising
and marketing services provided free of charge by HYPNO Design in
its second annual CreateAThon, scheduled for September 30, 2004. The
event, a 24-hour work-around-the-clock effort, will provide free creative
services to the selected non-profits. HYPNO is the Philadelphia regional
host for CreateAThon for the second year in a row.
Organizations selected as CreateAThon clients this
Appel Farm Arts and Music Center
Animal Welfare Association
The Career Wardrobe
Farm Worker Health and Safety Institute
Girl Scouts of South Jersey Pines
Goodwill Industries of Southern New Jersey
The International 22q 11.2 Deletion Syndrome Foundation, Inc.
Painted Bride Art Center
Please Touch Museum
Success by Six
Retired and Senior Volunteer Program of Montgomery County
Washington Township Live Arts
HYPNO received over 50 applications from non-profit
agencies all across the tri-state area. The agency expects to produce
between 35 - 40 projects for the 14 non-profits selected. "It
is such a gut wrenching process to choose who will be part of CreateAThon,"
said Alison Judah, HYPNO's president.
"We want to help everyone who needs it. Every
organization that submitted an application deserves support; they
are all doing such important work to improve our community."
In selecting the organizations, Judah noted that the agency followed
its criteria of choosing non-profits that provide direct services
to the people of the tri-state area. In addition to the 24-hour creative
blitz, HYPNO has partnered with CRW
Graphics of Pennsauken, to offer printing to further
expand CreateAThon benefits to the selected non-profits.
"CRW's enthusiasm to work with us and print these
materials at no cost to the non-profits," said Richard Cardona,
agency Creative Director, "is a wonderful and generous offer.
We are excited to see the final projects roll off of the presses this
year. CRW is a top notch printer and will do phenomenal work."
This year HYPNO is joined by Idea Lab, a marketing
and advertising agency located in Moorestown, that is volunteering
some of its staff to the cause.
Established in 1995, HYPNO provides a complete spectrum
of traditional and new media integrated marketing solutions to clients
throughout the Northeast. Major clients represented by HYPNO include
those in healthcare, educational, general services and the arts.

of Pennsauken NJ ( see
website ) will be sponsoring the printing for CreateAThon 2004!
This is fantastic news for all the non-profits who will be selected.
Not only is this a very kind and generous outreach from Harriet and
Larry Weiss of CRW, but it also means that the non-profit orgs will
get superior professional results for their print projects. CRW is a
premium quality printer, with strong a commitment to helping other cultural
and humanitarian organizations within our community. They also have
worked for some very demanding clients like, Verizon, Nordica, and the
University of the Arts, to name a select few. Their generous offer means
that the needs of the non-profits will be fully covered from beginning
to the end.
CRW's work is of the highest caliber, and the professional
results certainly will astound many of the non-profits who will be selected
to receive services. Many of these organizations will not have had the
pleasure of seeing their materials professionally produced before, let
alone produced by one of the best in the printing business.
We're very excited to see that CRW is committed to CreateAThon
and helping out to make CAT 2004 even better than last years! They've
already made quite an impact in non-profit pro-bono work, but this truly
separates them from the pack. These are great people, coming together
for great causes, making a tremendous impact on the quality of life
for many, many people in our community. We are so proud to be working
