DoSomething – Empowering teenagers is always a challenging task; what could possibly motivate a 15 year-old to do something good without receiving any tangible reward in return? DoSomething apparently has that magic ingredient and they believe teenagers have the power to make a difference. So if you have ideas about how you’d like to change the world, or have questions and concerns about how you can join in, drop DoSomething a visit. They will hook you up with numerous volunteering activities for you to choose from, or, if you prefer, they could suggest specific activities according to your personal preferences.
DoSomething is offering you a place to connect, a place to be inspired, be supported and yes, celebrated. Choose your mission theme, such as Animal Welfare, Discrimination, Poverty or anything else, and DoSomething will provide you with the tools and resources for you to convert your ideas and energy into positive action. So what are you waiting for? Be part of a generation of doers!
Despite the fact that my teenage years have long gone, I still want to be part of the doers. Below is a video I thought I’d share with you guys, it’s about Energy Conservation. I hope it will impact your thoughts and actions and help all of us realize that there is a big problem to be sorted out – by becoming greener than ever…
