Miley Cyrus is set to make another trip to Haiti.
The 18 year-old singer, who made her first trip in February with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, said she wanted to go again and is making it happen.
Last weekend she spent time in Minnesota at the Foundation’s Annual Gala where she bid on a trip to the Hurricane ravaged nation.
“After I went on my first mission to Haiti with the Starkey Hearing Foundation, I felt so drawn to helping others hear for the first time and immediately wanted to look for another chance to go back and help again,” she said at the Gala.
Miley ended up with the winning bid for the trip in the silent auction and tweeted how happy she was.
“Going back to Haiti just bid at the @starkeyhearing gala and it’s confirmed! I am so excited! Bringing all my friends this time. #blessed”
At the So The World May Hear Awards Gala, Miley performed for the crowd which included Marlee Matlin, former President Bill Clinton and Kevin Costner.
She shared in a statment:
“I grew up around music with my brothers and sisters and couldn’t imagine what it would be like if we couldn’t hear the magic of music – it’s had such an influence on my life – so I want everyone to have the ability to enjoy sound as it was intended.”
