Miley Cyrus Officially Launches Foundation

Miley Cyrus is giving back and in a big way.

She just officially launched The Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to rallying young people to fight the injustices faced by homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations.

To kick things off, Cyrus is unveiling the “Backyard Sessions,” a curated collection of music video collaborations between Cyrus and other prominent artists including Joan Jett, Laura Jane Grace, Melanie Safka and Ariana Grande.

Each music video, performed in Cryrus’ own backyard, will debut exclusively on Facebook and include a very special “Donate” feature that enables fans to make a direct donation to The Happy Hippie Foundation.

You can check out the first video with Miley Cyrus and Joan Jett here: http://happyhippi.es/different.

Funds raised will create digital support groups for LGBT youth and their families. This new technology will provide a safe, affirming experience for youth, no matter where they are, and directly connect them and their families with additional support services.

Way to go Miley! What a cool way to put your celebrity to work for a great cause.
