This Do Something Twitter  nominee and Boston native leads a busy life. Edward Norton is a well known actor, screenwriter, director, and a HULK… well, he played a Hulk. But giving back to others certainly gives him the Hulk’s strength and power to do just about anything.
During the New York Marathon, Edward used his Twitter to raise $1.2 million for the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust, which runs education, health, and conservation programs in a Maasai reserve. Most of his fans donated the money and thanks to Edward, the money went to great causes such as protection of local wildfire, employment of doctors and nurses, and the construction of schools in the African state. By running in the marathon, which Edward referred to as a “totally extraordinary experience,” and raising money for the trust, he truly made a difference.
Nice job, Edward! What do you think? Should Edward win the Do Something Twitter award? If so, then vote  online now and help him beat Ashton Kutcher, Alyssa Milano, Hugh Jackman, and BR Global PR.
