BUZZ is an inspiring television show that profiles nonprofit organizations and the marketing pros that help them do more, do better, by creating more buzz.

Our team broadcast our first four episodes in August 2020 on Blue Ridge PBS and on our social media platforms including YouTube, Facebook and Instagram. We are currently reviewing nonprofits and funding opportunities to produce four more episodes in fall 2020. Contact us for more info!

Creator

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.
