Wednesday 13 July 2011 @ 16:57 - GMT

Through 9 a.m. Eastern time, August 14, folks can vote for their favourite celebrities who do vital work, and inspire young people to do the same.  

''Couples'' are among the categories, and the names include Elton and David Furnish.

In addition to announcing the winners, one young "do-er" (age 25 and under) will be receiving a grand prize of $100,000 for their cause.

"This is not your grandma's award show," remarks Nancy Lublin, the CEO of DoSomething.org. "There will be no violins and no ballgowns."

The 2011 Do Something Awards will be hosted by Glee's Jane Lynch at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles and will air on Thursday, August 18, at 9 p.m. EDT on VH1, where the victors will be announced.

Meanwhile, votes can be cast at
