What is the “Do Something Awards?”
“DoSomething.org has been the premiere national award for community service, honoring the nation’s best, young world-changers, 25 and under since 1996. And this year they’re teaming up with VH1 for their biggest celebration yet of these globally-minded movers and shakers!” You can check out the Do Something About Me page for more information.
What is the relationship to Together We Rise (TWR)?
TWR is a finalist (top 5) for the 2012 Awards! As a finalist TWR will receive $10,000 to help foster youth. TWR will ensure that the money is stretched as far as it can go but there are A LOT of foster youth that need our support. If TWR wins, TWR will receive an additional $100,000 to put towards the foster youth cause!
How does this affect me?
TWR needs your help. There is no judges panel. You are the judge. TWR needs your vote, your friends’ vote, your Mom’s vote and your Mom’s long-lost best friend’s vote to win. More importantly, the foster youth TWR supports need your vote!
How do I Vote? How long will it take?
Voting is a simple process and will take less than 5 minutes of your time. You can vote via VH1 account (with email), Facebook or Twitter. Simply login to the account you wish to use and go here.
