On November 7, Glamour Magazine hosted its annual Women of the Year Awards at Carnegie Hall in NYC. In honor of the 21st anniversary of the event, Glamour recognized 21 amazing young women. So cool, right? The best part is that three of those 21 were Do Something-ers!
- Maggie Doyne was the 2010 Do Something Award Grand Prize Winner for her work in Nepal founding and running the Kopila Valley Children’s Home. The home cares for 40 kids, sends 60 others to school, and has assisted in the placement of over 700 orphans in the region.
- Taryn Guerro Davis was a 2011 Do Something Award Finalist for her work with the American Widow Project. Taryn started her own organization as a source for young military widows.
- Having once struggled with an eating disorder, Kristina Saffran founded Project HEAL, a not-for-profit to help young women with eating disorders afford proper treatment. Krista won the DoSomething.org We <3 Action scholarship for her amazing work.
Huge props to Maggie, Taryn, and Kristina for their admirable work and for such a huge honor. Do Something is so proud of you all!
