Despite the fact that Miley Cyrus was recently caught smoking salvia on camera, has been photographed drinking alcohol overseas while still underage, and took nude photos of herself which were later leaked, the singer/actress won an award for her positive influence on teens. And she has been making good on the award, including a recent trip to Haiti to visit children suffering from hearing disabilities.
Cyrus took the trip with her mother in late February to Port-Au-Prince, where the pair went to witness relief efforts being made by the singer’s charity organization Get Ur Good On. Part of her trip also involved encouraging young people to get involved in volunteering and philanthropic efforts, an important spokesperson as she is such a prominent figure to young adults.
Volunteers on the project, along with workers at the Starkey Hearing Foundation, teamed up to deliver hearing aids to earthquake survivors. Cyrus got to witness the giving first hand and told People magazine, “It was an amazing experience to watch kids hear for the first time in their lives.”
