Miley has founded a non-profit called The Happy Hippie foundation. It aims to help vulnerable homeless and LGBT youth through effective online support and increased awareness. Obviously you'd be forgiven for thinking these goals sound fairly indistinct, but you can't deny that constructive support - even in a digital environment - can prevent at-risk youngsters from taking some serious risks.
Here's Miley explaining it. She also sounds alarmingly like Hillary Clinton.
Miley hopes to raise money for Happy Hippie through a series of live performances that will encourage folks to donate. Like the first one, which featured Joan Jett:

Whatever the long term impact of Happy Hippie, there are now more people talking about issues affecting LGBT and homeless youth than there were yesterday, which can only be a good thing.
