Teen star Miley Cyrus is lending her support to the Big Hearted People 1,000 BACKPACKS CLICK-A-THON — a campaign by the group Blessings in a Backpack to help feed school children all around the world.

Blessings in a Backpack is a nonprofit organization dedicated to feeding elementary school children whose families qualify for the federal free and reduced meal program. The group provides food for over 25,300 children in 21 U.S. states and two countries.

“You don’t have to give a billion dollars; it’s not about that,” says Cyrus. “It’s not about how much or how far. It’s about looking at your neighbors and seeing how you can help. This isn’t just stuff that is all over the world. It’s right here, right next to you.”

The Big Hearted People 1,000 BACKPACKS CLICK-A-THON campaign runs from November 1-30 and features celebrity supporters like Hilary Duff, Sammy Hagar and Dwight Howard.
