Catch the Br!ck Awards on the CW Tonight!
The BR!CK Awards celebrate young people making our world better and is the first award show if its kind to be televised on national television. Tune in to The CW tonight at 9pm or set your Tivo to see for yourself! The show is only one-hour long and is claiming limited-commercial interruption. Hey man, whatever floats your boat.
Both citizen activists and celebrities will be there. The list of winners can be seen here. Originally created from Do Something, a nonprofit whose mission is: You have a lot of ideas about how you'd like to change the world or at least you have a lot of questions and concerns and you're looking for specific things you can do. We're giving you a place to connect, a place to be inspired, be supported, be celebrated. The only question is, "What's your something?"
Check it out for yourself. Everything could use a little substantive "something," wouldn't you say?
