Big-hearted Miley Cyrus headed to Haiti to do charity work. The 18-year-old star traveled with the Starkey Hearing Foundation to help distribute and fit hearing aids to more than 400 Haitians. It was Miley's second trip to the island, which is struggling to rebuild after the devastating 2010 earthquake. She said: "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. "This second mission to Haiti was just as impactful to me as the first one. I grew up around music and couldn't imagine what it would be like for my siblings and me, if we couldn't hear the magic of music. It's had such an influence on my life that I just want everyone to enjoy sound as it was intended." The mission of the Starkey Hearing Foundation is to foster greater understanding among people through hearing care by focusing on awareness, education, protection and treatment so the world may hear.
