Miley Cyrus Raises Awareness For Homeless At 2014 VMA’s

Since Miley Cyrus’ last VMA appearance, viewers eagerly awaited what she would come up with this year. However, what she did might change your view on the young pop star. At last night’s show, Miley won the Video of the Year Award with “Wrecking Ball”. Following the announcement, her mystery date walked onto the stage to accept the award, without Cyrus. The man then proceeded to introduce himself, and explain the situation. The 22-year-old said, “My name is Jesse and I am accepting this award on behalf of the 1.6 million runaways and homeless youth in the United States who are starving, lost and scared for their lives right now. I know this because I am one of these people.”

Jesse then informed the audience of Miley’s recent work with My Friend’s Place, an organization in Los Angeles created to help homeless people between 12 and 25 get shelter, health care, jobs, and even education. He also said nearly 54,000 less fortunate people will be without a home in the same city where the music industry makes $7 million just in this year.

Although Cyrus is no stranger to charity, a move like this on a stage like the VMA’s may have been a big risk, but likely a even bigger reward for the cause. As we’ve seen this summer with the “Ice Bucket Challenge” simple awareness of issues can go a long way to raise money for a cause. I don’t doubt Miley’s effort will be a great boost for the organization’s work.

If you would like to help the cause, you can go to My Friend’s Place here to donate.
