1. Miley Cyrus Is One Happy Hippie
Miley Cyrus may be known as the tongue-wagging rebel in the entertainment industry, but the singer and actress spends her free time bringing attention to her non-profit organization, the Happy Hippie Foundation. Launched in 2014, Cyrus and her charity fight the injustices that plague the youth – especially those in the LGBTQ community. Cyrus’s organization is focused on providing “digital support groups” for those who are affected, and she also hosts concerts headlining some of her famous friends. Money from these concerts go directly back to the cause. In March 2016, the Happy Hippie Foundation reported that they had provided 1,539 homeless youths with various programs and services.
