March 26, 2022 - Healing through Horror: suicide inspires new nonprofit
Show Notes

On today’s show we feature a nonprofit that was bourn out of incredible tragedy: the 2020 suicide of a Roanoke, Virginia icon, Louis Tudor. BUZZ creator Michael Hemphill shares his conversations with Louis’ wife, Jessica, and two of the guiding lights of the nonprofit created in his honor and memory, Tudor House. Michael also features the marketing agency who helped Tudor House create a new website: Nero Digital Design, owned by Michael Craighead.

We also share the work of the Council of Community Services, which is busily preparing for the first ever GIVE Roanoke day on April 20. Mark your calendars for this special day of giving in support of more than 70 nonprofits serving the Roanoke Valley.

Are you a nonprofit with an event that we could help promote? Or a marketing problem we could help fix? Contact us and we’ll share on an upcoming episode.

They’re not the rich and famous. They don’t run for office, preside over boardrooms, walk the halls of power. In a society seduced by celebrity and status … they have neither. Their capital isn’t financial, but social. Their profit comes not from the thing they sell, but from the good they do.

They are our nation’s nonprofits. The United States has more than 1.5 million nonprofits — from homeless shelters, food banks and rescue squads to children’s choirs, science museums and animal refuges — that employ one out of every 10 Americans. Like any company, nonprofits have salaries and bills to pay, a budget to balance. They require money. And if enough people don’t know about them, don’t believe in them, don’t support them — in short, if they lack BUZZ — they suffer and die.
