Gen Y Cares: The Top 10 Teen Causes

Many of my friends who are starting their own businesses, writing books, making blogs or getting jobs are very concerned with social awareness and giving back.  We are one of the most socially conscious generations and well aware of global warming, the importance of recycling, carbon offsets and our global footprint.
