In the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, many celebrities are stepping up to donate money and resources to those in need. One such star is Miley Cyrus, who has pledged money to help those in need.
The "Malibu" singer announced the news on Wednesday during her appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Speaking through tears, the former Hannah Montana star told the host that she felt moved to donate because she saw how the hurricane had affected so many lives.
"Miley has just told us backstage that she is donating $500,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief," DeGeneres told the crowd.
"I can't really talk about it," the "We Can't Stop" singer said, choking up. "My grandma is sitting here, my mom is here, and I go home to my seven dogs, and if I didn't have that anymore, it would be really hard. I'm really happy to help in anyway that I can, and I hope people understand and can put themselves in those people's shoes, and just know what it feels like to have everything taken away from you."

Am I empathetic, sympathetic, compassionate?.... Yes, yes, yes, and too much… far too much. This is not a humble-brag, it’s a problem. I’m a second-generation finder of strays and misfits. I’m chronically incapable of giving up on anyone, even when I should.
I don’t get frustrated with people and toss them aside. I don’t say “no” when I’m asked to do an inconvenient thing that helps another person. I don’t have an internal bitch I can switch on when a man is talking to me and I don’t want to be bothered; for some reason, I’m still polite and personable even as I say no thank you. Sometimes I really wish I didn’t care so much...
