Funds raised for DoSomething.org, one of the largest organizations for young people and social change in the U.S., will help provide DoSomething.org members with the information, tools and platform they need to take action on the causes they care about.

"DoSomething.org gives teens an accessible way to make a real impact on the causes they're most passionate about. With the help of DoSomething.org, they have the power to make change happen," said DoSomething.org CEO and Chief Old Person Nancy Lublin.

They also have access to ideas, activation strategies, promotional collateral and other valuable resources to help them get started. Members can also be eligible for grants to help advance their philanthropic pursuits.

"As a Company founded on the Golden Rule, JCPenney has a strong legacy of giving back, which is why we're thrilled to join forces with an organization that serves as an integral platform in empowering young people to make a difference," said Miki Woodard, jcp cares president and vice president of philanthropy at JCPenney.
