DO SOMETHING.ORG HONORS THE "ROCK STARS"
OF SOCIAL CHANGE!

June 4, 2009

 
 
 

LEADING U.S. YOUTH ORGANIZATION HONORS 2009 DO SOMETHING AWARD WINNERS WITH $10,000 GRANTS TO TAKE ACTION
 

New York, NY -- Do Something, the award-winning organization that is the largest in America for young people and social change, revealed the five winners of a Do Something Award this week on Facebook.  Each winner receives a $10,000 grant towards their specific cause.  All five of the winners will be honored in New York City at the star-studded Do Something Awards event on June 4, 2009 at Harlem's World Famous Apollo Theatre in New York City - where one of the five winners will win a $100,000 grand prize to continue their amazing work. 
 

"These are the 'Rock Stars' of social change," said Nancy Lublin, Do Something CEO and Chief Old Person.  "We are so proud to be honoring them with a $10,000 grant to continue their work and be shining examples of the 'Do Something Generation.'"
 

And the 2009 Do Something Award Winners are…(drum roll please)…


Marvelyn Brown, 24
, The Marvelous Connections Tour

Nashville, TN - Marvelyn thought it was a compliment that the guy she was sleeping with didn't want to use a condom…then she tested positive for HIV. Motivated by the lack of education about HIV/AIDS available in her community, Marvelyn launched an activism tour and published an autobiography, "The Naked Truth: Young, Beautiful and HIV Positive." Marvelyn has given a voice to the rapidly rising number of women afflicted with HIV/AIDS in the US, and has spoken on HIV to half a million people around the world, 200,000 of which got tested for HIV after hearing her speak.

 

Weston, CT - When he turned 16 in 2004, David was unable to understand why young voters didn't exercise their right to vote and participate in politics. Four years later, David used this frustration to launch the only youth-run, multi-media, national initiative for young voter registration, which contributed to the highest registration of 18-22 year-old voters in history. 18 in '08 started as a film, but has quickly become an unprecedented national peer-to-peer effort to register, engage, and mobilize young voters through ongoing screenings, which feature on-site voter registration and talkbacks with politicians, candidates, activists, students, and filmmakers.

 

Mendham, NJ - Maggie's high school graduation trip through Asia was one from which she never returned. Instead, Maggie used her life savings to buy land, build, and run Kopila Valley Children's Home in Nepal, a home for the most innocent victims of a decade-long civil war and continued political instability. Now, fluent in Nepali, Maggie provides a shelter that cares for 24 kids, has sent 60 others to school, and assisted in the placement of over 700 orphans in the region.

 

Boulder, CO - At 17, Eric visited Uganda to produce an independent documentary on the Kyangwali Refugee Settlement. He was astounded to learn that only 40% of primary school graduates in Uganda go onto secondary school and less than one percent go on to post-secondary education. In response, Eric launched Educate!, a program that empowers the next generation of socially responsible leaders in Africa by giving them scholarships, funding, leadership seminars, mentorships, and real-life resources to succeed as social entrepreneurs. Educate! has trained 375 scholars and impacted over 9,600 people through locally grown community initiatives spearheaded by their scholars.

 

Athens, GA - Darius, a 15-year old with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD), had a dream of getting his wheelchair "pimped out" on MTV's Pimp My Ride, and thus produced an award-winning documentary called Darius Goes West. To date, Darius has raised $1.6 million for DMD research through DVD sales, and is working with the 2009 National Principal of the Year, Dr. Mark Wilson, to push for nationwide inclusion of his story and DVD into every single high school health class. While this disease will eventually claim Darius' life (as it has already claimed his 19-year old brother's), he refuses to give up on his crusade to find a cure for the #1 genetic killer of children.

 

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!" A trusted resource for young people looking to get involved in their community, DoSomething.org gives young people easy ways to take action around and get involved in over 80 causes and issues (http://www.DoSomething.org/WhatsYourThing), works with over 500 school clubs to take action in 43 states, Puerto Rico and Canada (http://www.DoSomething.org/Clubs), and offers two $500 seed grants every week to young people wanting to get their project or cause off the ground (http://www.DoSomething.org/Grants).  DoSomething.org also houses the largest national database of geo-sorted, youth-appropriate volunteer opportunities, which is available via mobile text message.  (http://www.DoSomething.org/TextMe)
 

ABOUT DO SOMETHING:

Do Something believes teenagers have the power to make a difference. We leverage communication technologies to enable teens to convert their ideas and energy into positive action.  Recipient of Fast Company's Social Capitalist Award in 2008 and Webby People's Voice Award in 2009, Do Something inspires, empowers and celebrates a generation of doers (nearly 12 million kids in 2008): Teenagers who recognize the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action.  Plug in at www.DoSomething.org.
 

ABOUT THE DO SOMETHING AWARDS:

Do Something Award applications are reviewed and judged by the Do Something Award Academy (comprised of former winners) who read through every application and select 12 finalists. The 12 Do Something Award finalists are flown to New York City, where representatives from the Do Something Award Selection Committee interview the finalists face-to-face. The 12 finalists are narrowed down to five Do Something Award winners who will be honored on June 4th, 2009 at a star-studded event at Harlem's World Famous Apollo Theatre in New York City and receive a minimum of $10,000 in community grants and scholarships. Of those five winners, one will be selected as the grand prize Do Something Award winner and receive a total of $100,000 in community grants. The Do Something Award community grant money is paid directly to the not-for-profit of the winner's choice.  All winners have the option of receiving $5,000 of the total money awarded in the form of an educational scholarship.  Check out www.DoSomething.org/Programs/Awards.
