All too often, we hear millennials are slackers so plugged into their own worlds they're terminally disengaged from everyone else. Yet there are legions of people under 25 making a difference.

The VH1 Do Something Awards celebrate generally unknown good Samaritans and five celebrities making a difference. At this writing, a host had not been selected for the show that airs live from the Avalon in Hollywood Wednesday, July 31.

"It is not your grandmother's awards show," Naomi Hirabayashi, the chief marketing officer for the Manhattan-based nonprofit, tells Zap2it. "We want to first celebrate these amazing young people who are making a change in their community and celebrate for a night, to make them celebrities for a night. And the second thing is to honor those celebrity honorees also using their voice for good."

Entertainers being honored are Jennifer Hudson, Jesse Tyler Ferguson ("Modern Family"), Patrick Dempsey, Kelly Osbourne and LL Cool J. »
