Miley Cyrus made headlines Sunday night when she sent a homeless youth named Jesse onstage at the MTV VMAs to accept her Video of the Year trophy. He asked her fans to join her in helping the cause. Here's how you can do it.
Miley's launched an online fundraising campaign on Prizeo that will raise money for My Friend's Place, a shelter in Hollywood that helps kids build self-sufficient lives. Last week, Miley met with the kids and the staff of the establishment, and later tweeted, " Met some of the coolest young people I've ever met today."
If you make a $5 donation at Prizeo.com/MileyCyrus between now and September 21, you'll be entered for a chance to win a meet-and-greet with Miley at her September 28 concert in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The grand prize includes airfare and accommodations, plus tickets, backstage access, and hanging out with Miley before the show.
There are also other goodies available depending on how much you donate, including exclusive t-shirts and hoodies. The more you donate, the more times you'll be entered in the sweepstakes.
In a statement, Miley said, " I’m just getting started and I want to make sure my fans are part of helping me to give back and make an impact on this issue -- we all have the power to make change happen. This is about helping youth, people just like you and me have the opportunity to find their inner power."
