Happy National Volunteer Month. All April long, Repair the World will be sharing stories, fun opportunities and words of wisdom to help you serve at all different levels and in all different ways. We’ll also highlight great causes to get involved with. Check out today’s feature below, and tweet your service tips and stories to @repairtheworld #NVM.
Do you know an amazing service hero who deserves to be recognized for their volunteering? (Or are you that person?) Now is your chance make it happen – by applying or nominating someone for a Do Something Award.
Since 1996, DoSomething.org has shown the spotlight on the country’s most inspiring, young world-changers (25 and under) who are making a difference in their communities, and in the world. These are the folks who have identified issues or challenges, and are working passionately to find solutions. They have made long-term commitments to improving the lives of others, brought light to the issues they care about and mobilized others to do the same. In other words: they are service and community organizing superstars.
This year, five finalists will appear on the Do Something Awards on Vh1 and win a $10,000 community grant and media coverage to support their work. The grand prize winner will receive $100,000 during the live broadcast!
