If you’re an (the) avid MDG reader, you know that it hasn’t been all that long since I told you about DoSomething.org’s partnership with JetBlue for its “Celebrity Baggage Auction.” But, before you jump to any conclusions, this is not an update about how much money Lindsay Lohan’s tote bag brought in (although I’m sure it raised a ton of dough). Instead, it’s the latest news about how you can get out the vote for VH1’s Do Something Awards, and help your favorite celebrity take home a trophy or two.
Hosted by the multi-talented and super hilarious Jane Lynch, the ceremony will hand out awards to stars who do great things in the world and who inspire young people to follow in their “very large” footsteps. They’ll also choose one young “do-er” – under the age of 25 – to take home a grand prize of $100,000 for their cause.
Voting is now open, so cast your ballot for celebrity nominees in categories including “Do Something Movie Star,” “Do Something Comedian,” “Do Something Style,” "Do Something Music Artist,” “Do Something Twitter,” et cetera, so on and so forth. “Do Something” contenders include Scarlett Johansson, Russell Brand, Gisele Bundchen, The Black Eyed Peas and Ashton Kutcher (along with his beautiful wife, Demi).
You’ve got until August 14th to do something for celebrities who are doing something good for something or someone in the world.
