You have probably seen the awesome collaborations that Miley Cyrus has been busting out lately, but what are they for?!
Miley Cyrus recently started the Happy Hippie Foundation which is a non-profit aimed at making the world a much better place.
Our mission is to rally young people to fight injustice facing homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations.
Miley and her team are working hard to find a way to reach as many people as they can, so she is using Backyard Sessions, interviews, and her long list of celebrity friends to get more people interested in helping. The foundation runs off of donations and is still in the baby stages.
From Happy Hippie Foundation:
Everyone deserves a safe place to call their home and the chance to make their dreams a reality.
But in the U.S.:
- 1.6 million youth are homeless each year - 40% of homeless youth identify as LGBT, and family rejection is the most common reason LGBT youth experience homelessness - 25% of homeless youth were previously physically or sexually abused - Nearly one in three transgender people have been turned away from shelters
