The 18-year-old actress won a silent auction over the weekend at the So The World May Hear Awards Gala that would send her back to Haiti on her second hearing mission.
Miley first visited the country with the Starkey Hearing Foundation in March 2011, where she helped distribute hearing aids to those in need. It was Mileyâ€™s first introduction to the Starkey Hearing Foundation, and quickly led to her involvement in the Foundationâ€™s Listen Carefully campaign.
“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,” Miley shared in a statement. “I grew up around music with my brothers and sisters and couldnâ€™t imagine what it would be like if we couldnâ€™t hear the magic of music â€“ itâ€™s had such an influence on my life â€“ so I want everyone to have the ability to enjoy sound as it was intended.”
