Do Something! A Handbook For Young Activists : Do Something! takes aim at the next generation of do-gooders. Written in a lively, in-your-face style, designed to be edgy and hip, it's the kind of interactive, educational book every parent will feel good about giving because it shows kids how to get involved, in language they understand. It's an idea-to-execution guide. Quizzes help readers pinpoint their "thing" - a cause that fires them up. Then come the tools that show how to get something done, whether it's making a poster, raising money, sending around a petition, or enlisting friends. There are 33 action plans, touching on areas such as the environment, human rights, poverty, animal welfare, education, disaster relief - plus worksheets, facts, and outlines to help socially conscious kids create their own projects, and, for inspiration, profiles of DoSomething.org grant winners.
