On Aug. 24, the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) took place at The Forum in Inglewood, California, and Miley Cyrus's "Wrecking Ball" video was named "Video of the Year," the biggest award of the evening. When the time came for Cyrus to accept the award, she sent a homeless man named, Jesse, on her behalf, to give her moving speech about her latest philanthropic cause.

The RCA recording songstress launched Prizeo fundraising campaign, where she invites her dedicated fans to join her fight to end youth homelessness. This campaign benefits My Friend's Place, a drop-in service center in Hollywood, California, which assists and inspires homeless youth to build up their lives. She had met with youth and staff at My Friend's Place, where she learned about the challenges and potential solutions of homelessness.

Her fans can make a donation for this cause, by visiting its official website, from now until September 21. One of the benefits of entering is that cans will automatically be entered in the running for a chance to win a meet and greet with Cyrus at her upcoming concert towards the end of next month in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This grand prize, will include the full VIP experience, consisting of two tickets, as well as backstage access and the chance to hang out with Miley Cyrus before the show. It will cover the airfare and accommodations for two people.
