By Zulay Regalado, 21, reporting from Miami, FL, on a website that matches your personal passion with an important (and fun) cause
Want to start a movement in your community but you don't know where to begin? Inspired to do something—only you're not sure exactly what?
Dosomething.org is a non-profit organization that gives teens free reign to stand up for the causes you love. You can find ways to support any issue you care about, from poverty to racial discrimination and health to animal testing, or start your own club with friends to help raise awareness. You can launch a petition, become an activist for your community, or even stand beside Paramore's Hayley Williams in her fight against sex trafficking.
Whatever your areas of interest, the site provides interesting facts and background to help you decide where best to apply your energy. (Did you know that there are six million more women than men in the world, yet women only receive 11 percent of the world's income?)
On top of making the world a better place, it's a fun way to earn some community service hours for school and even add that extra humanitarian touch to your college resume. By connecting with others around the things you're passionate about, "something" can mean everything.
