Miley Cyrus Charity for Homeless LGBT Youth
By Chantal Strasburger | 05/06/15 | Teen Vogue
Miley Cyrus Charity: The response to her controversial move inspired Miley to take her actions one step further, and today she announced the launch of The Happy Hippie Foundation, an organization that will help fight the injustices homeless and LGBT youth face every day.
It’s that whole-hearted acceptance that drives Miley forward. “Pointless judgment and its effects are unfortunately something that is way too common. All humans have valid feelings and rights! I want to use my voice as a megaphone to young people everywhere and encourage human evolution,” Miley explained.
“No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status. That’s why Happy Hippies are here to say that every life is valuable!”
Everywhere you turn in the last few years you have probably seen some form of a Miley Cyrus image, news line or lyric. Some being for her outlandish behavior, and others for her sheer musical talent. Either way, there is no denying Miley has become a media juggernaut.
Miley is using all this media exposure she has surrounding her for the greater good.
She announced May 5th 2015 that she will be founding a new nonprofit called Happy Hippie that focuses on helping homeless LGBT youth.
To kick things off for her nonprofit, the pop-star teamed up with Joan Jett to host a ‘Backyard Sessions’ musical series that was posted to Miley Cyrus’s Facebook page. She has the exposure to really move this organization to great heights and is also getting the help from other top list celebrities to back her new nonprofit.
We recommend Miley consider mobile event fundraising in which viewers can make a donation from their smartphone at any time during the event within a matter of minutes. Additionally, a text to donate keyword that is unique to Happy Hippie can be displayed on the live stream at all times encouraging those watching to also participate.
