The net assets of Miley Cyrus were estimated at $ 200 million in 2017. Her lifetime (2001-2017) profit is estimated at more than $ 360 million.
So how does Cyrus spend all that money? Not by itself as one would believe. Cyrus made the Forbes Celebrity 100 list for the first time during her Hannah Montana days and her income has only grown. Although we have all experienced the different phases of Cyrus (few will forget her MTV VMA performance due to the use of foam fingers), in every phase of her life she has chosen to help others.
She donates to countless charities
Cyrus became famous at the young age of 11 in the popular Disney show Hannah Montana. The show gathered a huge following that led to a film, a spin-off series (Hannah Montana Forever), designer clothes and toys and countless music sales.
Already in 2011, Cyrus began to use its fame as a platform to give to various charities. She met fans through the Kids Wish Network charity, distributed a number of charity singles in the coming years, and performed at benefit concerts such as the Solange Knowle concert for victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Cyrus currently supports thirty-nine popular charities. They include the Make-a-Wish Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Love is Louder than the Pressure to Be Perfect and St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.
She was named the fourteenth most charitable celebrity of the year in 2013
The year 2014 was important for Cyrus. She won “Video of the Year” for her song “Wrecking Ball” on the MTV VMAs. Instead of accepting the prize himself, Cyrus had 22-year-old Jesse, a homeless man, pick it up for her.
Cyrus met Jesse at My Friend’s Place, an organization that is committed to helping homeless young people find work, get an education, and get off the street. Jesse’s speech showed more than Cyrus’s dedication to lending her finances to charities: it encouraged her fellow performers to do the same. Cyrus then encouraged fans to donate to her Prieo campaign for My Friend’s Place to have a chance to meet her during her Bangerz Tour.
Cyrus started the Happy Hippie Foundation
The singer ‘Love Money Party’ appreciates love in general. The mission of its foundation is: “Gathering young people to fight injustice against homeless youth, LGBT youth and other vulnerable populations.” The death of Leelah Alcorn, a transgender teenager who committed suicide, inspired Cyrus to found the Happy Hippie Foundation.
“That’s what I wanted to do. That’s what made me happy. And that’s what Happy Hippie is about: doing what you do, being happy and not hurting anyone. It gave me meaning in everything.”
From 2016, the non-profit organization of Cyrus, in cooperation with My Friend’s Place, had donated “40,000 meals, 20,000 snacks and 40,000 pairs of underwear and socks.”
She has a simple message about money and fame:
They won’t make you happy. “People in this industry think, I just have to get more and more money, and I feel like,” What do you get more money for? You probably wouldn’t be able to spend it all in this life, “she told Hello Giggles. better known, so that they can make their brand famous, so that they can sell more shit, so that they can earn more money, it’s an infinite cycle, get more money, have more hits, play the lead in the film – those things can stimulate you but they don’t make you happy. I’ve been through it all before, and I tell you firsthand, it doesn’t work. “
