Miley Cyrus Urging New York Politicians to Help Homeless Youth


Miley Cyrus has written a letter to New York politicians, urging them to budget more money to help homeless youths.

The singer launched her crusade to help displaced kids during the MTV Video Music Awards last year, when she invited homeless pal Jesse Helt to be her date and to accept her Video of the Year prize on behalf of all needy youngsters in the U.S.

She has now stepped up her campaign by penning a letter to New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and other local politicians, urging them to support a proposal to set aside $4.8 million in the next state budget to help homeless kids.

In the letter, Cyrus writes, “These young people are homeless through no fault of their own. They’ve been kicked out of their homes or are fleeing abusive parents. And too often they’re forced into dangerous situations just to find a place to sleep.

“But it doesn’t have to be like this, and there’s a clear way to make an impact right now: more funding for homeless youth shelter beds.”

Cyrus, who also founded her own homeless charity called the Happy Hippie Foundation last year, adds, “I’m proud of the work that we’ve done, but we need leaders like you to help.”
