By Kaley Allard

Miley Cyrus may have been all about having fun at the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, but this year, she was strictly business. The latest celebrity news cites that in order to raise awareness about youth homelessness and promote her fundraising campaign, she brought a homeless man named Jesse as her date. When Miley’s hit song “Wrecking Ball” took home the Video of the Year award, she let Jesse take the spotlight and give her acceptance speech. Cyrus was brought to tears by his speech, and instead of hitting up post-VMA parties, the duo headed to In-N-Out Burger to celebrate, according to She posted an adorable photo on Instagram to commemorate the evening. While her twerking days may not be over, at least Cyrus is taking a break and advocating for causes that are truly important to her. This celebrity news melts our hearts!

How can you and your partner incorporate charitable causes into your relationship?

Cupid’s Advice:

For most of us, extra time and money are hard to come by. This fact makes it difficult for working couples to help charitable organizations. Do not fear! Cupid has some dating and love advice to help you and your partner contribute to those causes that are near and dear to you without making you eat Ramen noodles for the rest of your lives:

1. Donate money: Instead of spending money on that five-star restaurant, you and your partner should consider giving those funds to a charity that means something to both of you, whether it be to an animal rights group or to bring clean drinking water to third world countries. Make it a monthly tradition and pick a new organization each time!

2. Donate time: Instead of spending your day mindlessly sitting around the house or wandering around the mall, make your Saturday useful by volunteering with your partner. There are so many opportunities to help out in even the smallest of communities. Look into local nursing homes, soup kitchens, and animal shelters, just to name a few options. It’ll make you feel good to help others in need, and those who you helped will be forever grateful.

3. Fundraise: Sit down with your partner and  organize a fundraiser for a local organization that’s struggling. Rally your friends and neighbors to help raise awareness or to donate funds. Any way that you can give back to your community will show how proud you are of your home.
