(WTNH) — Todd Zavorskas sat down with Ryan to talk about his spooky business. Todd is started a company in 2013 called Zombie leaders which raises money for specific charities.
Some of the charities zombie leaders supports are, Saving Savannah & Seattle, Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and NCAS. He has worked with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for the past 20 years helping them raise nearly $120,000 through various events. A lover of comic books and The Walking Dead, Todd’s start-up, donates a percentage of its profits to charities including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Camp Royall N.C. Autism Camp, & PanCan.
Todd said, “I help others because I can. It’s the right thing to do. I don’t have much money, but I have the time and passion to help others in need.”
Zombie Leader is a Connecticut owned company founded in 2013 by T. Zavorskas. Mr. Zavorskas is an avid comic, autograph, and memorabilia collector. When he doesn’t teach Science during the day, he is the Zombie Leader by night.
Zombie Leader’s have been involved with spreading Good Deeds One Bite at a Time ever since Todd’s grandmother, Anne, passed away from Hodgkin’s Disease and his mentor’s son, Ryan, passed away from leukemia. Leukemia causes more deaths than any other cancer in children under the age of 20. Ryan had been in remission and passed at the age of 19. These personal experiences have motivated Todd to donate his time and money to the Connecticut Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Todd has worked on their behalf now for over 20 years, and was honored to be named their 2000 prestigious “Unsung Hero” Award as well as the 2005 Mid-Fairfield County American Red Cross “Unsung Hero” award for my charitable efforts.
When Todd Zavorskas is not being a zombie he is a middle school science teacher in Connecticut.
