Miley Cyrus is cleaning out her closet — for a good cause.
She’s just announced plans to auction off her clothing and accessories on eBay. The proceeds will benefit Get Ur Good On, a social network aimed at connecting youth with volunteer and service opportunities in and around their communities.
“For me I get this amazing blessing and opportunity to do this every day and get up on stage and hopefully inspire people with my music,” Cyrus said in a video message posted on the Get Ur Good On site. “And that’s something that’s really important to me, but so is getting involved in charities.”
In recent months, it’s been Cyrus’ clothing (or lack thereof)
most of the headlines. But the new auction is just the latest charity endeavor she’s undertaken with Youth Service America, the organization that runs Get Ur Good On.
Earlier this summer, she served as a spokesperson for YSA’s “Blessings in a Backpack” mission, which provides weekend meals to children on free- or reduced-lunch programs.
“There’s amazing charities right here in America. You don’t have to travel 30 hours … you don’t have to give a billion dollars. It’s not about how much or how far, it’s about looking at your neighbors and seeing how you can help,” Cyrus said. “This isn’t just stuff that’s all over the world, it’s right here, it’s right next to you. It’s important to get involved.”
Cyrus’ Get Ur Good On auction is scheduled to begin later this month.
