Do Something targets that inactivity gap. We want to create a 'do something' generation -- where more than 51% of young people are involved with community action.
Anaheim, CA (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
With Spring Break right around the corner and summer vacation not far behind, the question many young people are asking is, "What can I do with my time that is both fun and rewarding?" The answer is simple, they can find something to do at Do Something, an interactive website designed to show young people how easy it is to change the world. Ecommerce fundraising site nonprofitshoppingmall.com offers an introduction to Do Something on their homepage, through an interview with Emme, supermodel television personality, best-selling author, lecturer, clothing designer, women's advocate and Do Something supporter. Her insightful interview is not to be missed -- it's no wonder she's received honors from publications such as People, Ladies' Home Journal, Glamour and Biography to name but a few.
The Do Something site is a place to be inspired, supported and celebrated and features volunteer options highlighting a cross-section of causes--from animal welfare to teen homelessness to discrimination, global warming, school violence and more. Their website is a community where young people learn, listen, speak, vote, volunteer, ask, and take action to make the world a better place. "83% of teenagers in America say they want to do something about the state of the world, but only 28% actively volunteer," says Do Something CEO Nancy Lublin. "Do Something targets that inactivity gap. We want to create a 'do something' generation -- where more than 51% of young people are involved with community action."
Their site is easy to navigate and allows visitors to choose their SOMETHING and learn about the issues that affect them. From there they can enter their zip code to access the nation's largest database of volunteer opportunities for teenagers. These two features are ingenious tools for both young people and parents looking for solid community service projects.
