It was a star studded, feel good time during the Do Something Awards at the Apollo Theater in Harlem last night, where the organization revealed the five $10,000 winners of a Do Something Award. Reaching over 12 million people (age 25 and under) in 2008, Do Something is driven by its rule of "No Money, No Car, and No Adults!" It has become a trusted resource for young people looking to get involved in their community, and DoSomething.org gives young people easy ways to take action around and get involved in over 80 causes and issues.
Here are the five winners of the 2009 Do Something Awards - all of whom were incredibly inspiring to see on stage last night and hear in person about the amazing difference they have each made with their respective causes. A big congratulations goes to Maggie Doyne, 22 who was the winner of the $100,000 grand prize for her orphanage in Nepal. Well done Maggie - I love to see young women making change.
