Bing and DoSomething continued the Bing Summer of Doing at Jacob H. Schiff Playground, by helping restore and beautify CITYarts’ Pieces for Peace Mosaic. The campaign aims to inspire young people to come together and give back to their communities throughout the summer. The Bing Summer of Doing is in celebration of the new Bing, which combines the best of search with the best people from popular social networks like Facebook and Twitter, to help people spend less time searching and more time doing.
Bing and DoSomething.org worked alongside celebrities and volunteers to beautify and restore CITYarts Mosiac Peace Wall in the heart of Harlem by retiling and restoring the Wall. The Peace Wall was produced by CITYarts following the tragic events of 9/11 to facilitate greater understanding among people of different cultures and bring together young people through their shared vision of peace. Volunteers also cleaned up the surrounding parks and playground. The day of service concluded with an unveiling of the projects and a surprise performance by Kat Graham.
The event also served as the kick-off of DoSomething.org’s “The Hunt: 11 Days of Doing,” in collaboration with Bing and Lenovo. The Hunt will pose 11 days of challenges, each with the goal of engaging teens around the country to affect social change for positive community impact. Teens will work together to complete the challenges and report back to show how they created measurable impact in their community, all while collecting points to win cool prizes and scholarships. The challenges will focus on important issues such as the environment, poverty, bullying, education, and more.
Young people everywhere can find ways to get involved in their own communities, by visiting www.Bing.com/doing to search for local projects on Bing.com, and use the new Bing to get inspiration from friends for ways to give back this summer.
