Miley Cyrus Auctions Off Grammys Gown for Haiti Relief Effort
Teen sensation MileyCyrus is stepping up her efforts to help victims of the Haiti earthquake - she`s raising money by selling the dress she wore to Sunday night`s, January 31 Grammy Awards. The 17 year old stepped out on the red carpet in Los Angeles wearing a teal-colored gown by Herve Leger.
And she`s decided to put her fashion-forward frock on internet auction site eBay.com to raise money for charity efforts in Haiti, which was devastated by a massive tremor in January. Cyrus admits she is desperate to help in any way she can - because she has been deeply affected by the troubling scenes in the Caribbean country.
She tells USA Today, "I`m going to auction it (the dress) off on eBay for the Red Cross. It`s the little things you can do. I think it`s really important that everybody come (sic) together because disaster relief isn`t just now. It`s how we`re going to help years from now."
"We have to restore an entire place. It just can`t be one person, one foundation, one group of people. All people have to come together." Cyrus is also joining Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie to record a new version of "We Are The World" to benefit charity efforts in Haiti.
