Welcome to March – to Emme, to Spring and the Do Something Spirit!

Posted on March 3rd, 2008 by Corine in people who care, volunteerism 0 Comments

I know that technically speaking, it’s still winter – but for some reason, I feel like spring has sprung. With retailers showing bright colors, lush florals and dreamy vacation spots that constantly sweep across my screen, I think I may actually have a case of spring fever. Okay, so it might be a little early, but the upside to my restlessness is that I’m energized, excited and feel a change on the horizon – a change for the good and one that, with the help of Do Something, can be driven largely by young people from coast to coast.

It so happens that our people who care spokesperson for March, Emme, supermodel, television personality, best selling author and big time Do Something supporter, feels like I do. Emme also believes that young people have the power to act, to make a difference and to implement change. We are delighted to welcome her here and to introduce Do Something and its mission to those of you who might be unfamiliar with this dynamic youth-oriented organization. Do Something aims to inspire, support and celebrate a generation of do-ers: people who see the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action. The Do Something website is a community where young people learn, listen, speak, vote, volunteer, ask, and take action to make the world a better place. Currently, only 23% of the youth demographic actively volunteers. Hoping to create a do something generation: a world where more than 51% of young people are involved with community action, the Do Something site has something for everyone with their highly interactive, multi-media approach to inspiring change.

I was first introduced to Do Something on a flight from LA to New York, when by chance I was seated next to Mandy Moore’s guitar player who was on his way in to play the Brick Awards. Later, as I was looking for a community service activity for my 15 year-old, I was hugely impressed by the wide variety of options available to him both locally and abroad. Do Something makes it easy to get involved – whether you’re young or ‘old’, just watch this video and find your SOMETHING!

Our March newsletter will follow within a couple of days – watch for information about new nonprofit partnerships, eco-friendly office supplies and culinary news.Thank you again to Billy Bush and the Lollipop Theater Network for hosting our February homepage. We will keep Lollipop on our list of nonprofit partners and we encourage you to visit their site and keep the good work they’re doing in mind when you shop.
