MILEY CYRUS has launched a new initiaitve for her non-profit organization THE HAPPY HIPPIE FOUNDATION, 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" presented by THE HAPPY HIPPIE FOUNDATION -- a curated collection of music video collaborations between CYRUS and other prominent artists who support the organization's mission, including JOAN JETT, LAURA JANE GRACE, MELANIE SAFKA and ARIANA GRANDE. Each music video, performed in CYRUS' own backyard, will debut exclusively on FACEBOOK and include a very special "Donate" feature that enables fans to make a direct donation to HAPPY HIPPIE.

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.
"Pointless judgment and its effects are unfortunately something that is way to common. All humans have valid feelings and rights! I want to use my voice as a megaphone to young people everywhere and encourage human evolution," said CYRUS. "No one should have to hide who they really are, no matter what his or her name, gender or status. That's why HAPPY HIPPIES are here to say that every life is valuable!"
