Small & Gutsy

Small & Gutsy offers our listeners the opportunity to learn about the smaller, less known nonprofits and social impact organizations with revenues under $10 M. Our aim is to tell their story and further build their client, potential employee, volunteer and funding networks. Focusing on this BIG, LITTLE Sector is our way of giving back to communities by bringing their stories to life and celebrating them. The goal for the Small & Gutsy podcast is to raise the visibility of this Big little social impact sector.  Tune in every week as we interview a different organization so you can learn about them, maybe find a job, volunteer, or donate.

Today’s podcast is featuring an organization that is doing something significant to fight this catastrophic fentanyl poisoning epidemic.

Stop The VOID was formed to bring to the public’s attention, through education, awareness and legislative advocacy, the immediate danger of sudden death associated with the use of illicit drugs laced with deadly fentanyl.

Their purpose is to educate youth about the danger of sudden deaths associated with fentanyl poisoning. They have created educational materials, public service announcements in the form of documentary type films which quite honestly are hard to watch but incredibly important. They have talking points for educators and parents - their ultimate goal is to educate everyone about fentynol poisoning and about the dangers that abound on social media platforms where many of these drugs are purchased.  One of their key strategies is to get into every school system to share information; their website has stories of living victims, usually the loved ones left behind.
