After she won Video of the Year for "Wrecking Ball" at the 2014 VMAs, Miley Cyrus opted not to walk onto the stage to accept her trophy — but rather, she sent someone in her place: Cyrus had a homeless youth accept the award for her.
While Jimmy Fallon held the microphone, the young man named Jesse explained how those watching could donate to My Friend’s Place, a homeless center for young people in Hollywood, while Cyrus wept watching in the audience.
Miley explained further on her Facebook page:
Help me raise awareness and funds to end youth homelessness! This is just the beginning for me, but we’re going to get started now by focusing on My Friend’s Place, a homeless center for young people in Hollywood.
You can support the cause by making a donation here:www.prizeo.com/miley! For every $5 donation, you’ll be entered to win a trip for 2 to Brazil to hang out with me at my show in Rio de Janeiro on Sept 28th. You'll get the full VIP experience, including 2 of the best seats in the house.
