Did you know that May is ‘Better Hearing and Speech Month’? Yeah, me neither! But you know who does? Miley Cyrus and the Starkey Hearing Foundation!

Miley has teamed up with the foundation for a new campaign called “Listen Carefully” which has a simple goal: raise awareness about the 31 percent increase in teen hearing loss by getting young adults to lower the volume on their electronics. It seems like a simple solution with long term benefits.

The campaign is holding a sweepstakes through June 15th, where fans are invited to enter for a chance to attend a sound check of Miley’s tour so they can win a “listening experience” with the singer.

In addition, the 18-year-old has also recorded a series of PSA announcements that deliver the message, “Your hearing is fragile, so don’t listen loudly, listen carefully.”

Miley first became involved with the foundation during a charity trip to Haiti, where she visited children suffering from hearing disabilities.

“As an artist, I want to make sure fans are able to experience the magic of music as it was intended,” Miley explained. “By just lowering the volume and using the right protection for your ears, hearing loss can be prevented, which means never losing the ability to enjoy the sound of a guitar, a beautiful lyric or a favorite song.”

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
