Think what you will about Miley Cyrus! Instead of showing up to an awards show twerking, she showed up to this year’s MTV Video Music Awards stepping away from the spotlight and toward a very charitable cause.
After she was announced the winner for Video of the Year, Miley had a young man named Jesse accept the award on her behalf and deliver a very important message.
Jesse is a homeless young man in Los Angeles.
Jesse stood onstage nervous and uncomfortable, while Miley looked on in tears. Jesse directed viewers to check out Miley’s Facebook page, where she posted a video about My Friend’s Place, a homeless youth shelter in Hollywood.
Miley posted the following 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. #MyFriendsPlace #VMAs2014”
Miley, we salute you!
