Area personalities launch nonprofit

John Urban, a photographer, videographer, and former DJ in Madison, has partnered with Leola “Lea” Culver, a co-founder of Culver’s restaurants, to launch Big Dreamers United, a nonprofit that helps other nonprofits better communicate their causes at no charge, according to a Wisconsin State Journal story.

Their intent ranges from producing videos to helping nonprofits with social media. The organization has served about a dozen nonprofits thus far, and Culver reportedly funded the first year herself. She and Urban are currently fundraising for year two.
