Despite being on the screen since childhood, a lot of people still don't know the real Miley Cyrus. The former Disney star has done a lot to support vulnerable populations, including launching her own charity: 'Happy Hippie Foundation'. What is this organization all about? Watch the video below!
The rising economic inflation, paired with the lack of jobs and high college dropout rate have turned the streets of America to a refuge for the homeless.
Unlike the usual addicts, our talented youth is being forced to find solace on the pavement. Worried by this predicament, singer Miley Cyrus decided to raise her voice and do something about the injustice.
'Happy Hippie Foundation' came as a solace for homeless young individuals, and members of the LGBTQ+ community after its launch in 2015.
Since it's a private American non-profit organization, they claim to invest 100% of the donations towards the betterment of their target group.
According to their website,
'Our program areas include prevention, crisis response to meet basic immediate needs, support services to build long-term well-being, and public education to engage young people globally in systemic change through fundraising and awareness campaigns.'
Miley's organization contributed in helping the victims of the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting, Great Smoky Mountains' wildfire, and organized multitudes of social media campaigns.
Pre-pandemic, the organization also sold their merch in order to increase funds and work towards fulfilling their agenda.
The 'Wrecking Ball' singer is seen sporting 'Happy Hippie' merch many times and never leaves a chance to talk about or to promote her incredible initiative. Since the groups they cater to are neglected in today's age, I believe foundations like these are incredibly important. Did you know about this amazing deed of Miley's?
