DoSomething.org releases mobile app that summarizes news

DoSomething.org has launched the “Do Something” app, the first app that will give young people daily, immediate actions to make an impact based on today´s headlines, the company said.

The Do Something app summarizes current events for young people and gives them specific ways to take action on issues in the news. Each news item is paired with one of DoSomething.org´s 270 campaigns. Every DoSomething.org campaign has a clear call to action that is backed by research to make a real impact on the cause space and doesn´t require money.

Users will also be able to filter campaigns by cause space, making it easy for them to find a campaign focused on a cause they care about. Whether it´s discrimination, the environment, poverty, or animals, young people will be able to find a clear way to make an impact.

One of the largest global orgs for young people and social change, DoSomething.org´s 5.2 million members in 130 countries tackle volunteer campaigns that impact every cause.
