Young People Transform Their Ideas Into Action By Taking On "The Hunt" With DoSomething.org And Toyota

NEW YORK, July 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For the first time ever, DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit for young people and social change, turned to its members, aged 13-25, for their ideas on how to tackle different social issues. From August 4 to August 10, the DoSomething.org community in partnership with Toyota will take on these campaigns in "The Hunt."

Seven creative social change campaign idea finalists were selected from DoSomething.org members – including YouTube stars Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi of the popular a capella group "Superfruit" and singer Max Schneider.  DoSomething.org members will activate their one-day campaigns in local communities across seven cause spaces including the environment, education, and physical and mental health.  Because text messages have a whopping 97% open rate, these crowd-sourced actions will be sent directly to participants cell phones.

Among the young DoSomething.org member finalists are:
  • Scott Hoying and Mitch Grassi, 22 and 21 years old, Los Angeles, California
  • Alanna Wall, 14 years old, Dayton, Ohio
  • Ethan Woodfill, 14 years old, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"The best ideas aren't always in the room," said Aria Finger, Chief Operating Officer at DoSomething.org. "This is the first time we've opened our platform to our members to share their social change campaign ideas. Since DoSomething.org is the largest organization for young people and social change, the Hunt gives young people the opportunity to elevate their ideas on a national scale."
