Entertainer Miley Cyrus who has cleaned up her act over the past few months wept when speaking about Americans affected by Hurricane Harvey.
Cyrus is giving $500,000 to #HarveyRelief as she joins many celebrities who have opened up their wallets to help those who were affected by the damaging Hurricane that has killed close to 15 individuals.

“Don’t make me cry,” said Cyrus while sobbing. “I hope people know like I couldn’t fake it. Like, my grandma’s sitting here [and] my mom’s here, and I go home to my seven dogs — if I didn’t have that anymore, it’d just be really hard.”
Cyrus insisted she didn’t have to think twice about using her celebrity status for good.
“I’m really happy to help in any way that I can and I hope people understand and can put themselves in those people’s shoes. Just to know what it feels like to have everything taken away from you,” she explained.
Cyrus also hinted Wednesday she had a big announcement with her Happy Hippie Foundation to help those in need.
“All donations received as of August 30, 2017 will support people affected by Hurricane Harvey,” revealed the organization’s website. “Relief funds will be directed to the American Red Cross, Best Friends, the Greater Houston Community Fund, and other organizations providing important immediate and long-term relief and recovery services.”
She’s donating half a million from her own pocket and then 100% of donations on behalf of her foundation. She used her platform for good ????

The 500K is on behalf of her foundation and as of 8/30 all donations her foundation receives are going to Harvey. Yes good but not her money

Say what you want to about Cyrus, but she’s putting her money on where her heart is with this sizeable donation. I am glad she’s doing it. We do not agree politically, but she’s on point with this contribution.
