2011 Do Something Awards, Community the Real Winners

Los Angeles, California – Five INCREDIBLE young men and women were introduced as semi finalists for the $100,000 annual prize to help their charity or organization. But, while these youths are certainly impressive, it was less about recognizing a small group of people and more about building an incredible community of doers. Bands like One Republic and Wilson Phillips rocked the mic, Jane Lynch was hysterical, and celebrities like skater Tony Hawk and Will Farrell made their presences known during this incredible evening of inspiration and selflessness.

Demi Lovato performed her hit single, Skyscraper. Kim Kardashian and Nick Cannon presented. It was truly an amazing night of special people willing to make a change. Even the commercials were centered around charitable organizations!

While Sarah Cronk took home the $100,000 2011 Do Something Award, the other 4 contestants received $10,000 from DoSomething.org, and EVERYONE who participated in any way came out winners. We feel great just writing about it! Hey, maybe 2012 will include a Do Something Magazine award! *Wink Wink*
