“These young people are homeless through no fault of their own”

Miley Cyrus has written a letter to Andrew Cuomo asking the New York governor to include $4.75 million in funding for homeless youth in the state’s budget.

The singer, whose Happy Hippie Foundation advocates for young people without homes, asked the governor and the leaders of the state’s assembly and senate to back a request by a state senator to allocate the money for 1,000 new beds, which she says are badly needed.

“Between 2009 and 2012,” Cyrus writes, “the number of kids turned away from homeless youth shelters in New York grew from 570 to more than 5,000.”

Cyrus posted the letter on Instagram for fans to read:

Speaking up so homeless youth in NY can have a place to sleep!!! #makingchange #HappyHippies @happyhippiefdn

TIME

The Sun, the moon, and Google are celebrating the official start of spring — this year’s vernal equinox on March 20 will include a solar eclipse, a supermoon and a stop-animation Google Doodle.

As TIME wrote last year, the vernal equinox is when “earth’s axis is angled such that the world gets an equal amount of daylight and night,” signaling the start of spring in the Northern Hemisphere.

[newsletter-the-brief]

This year’s spring begins with a celestial bang. Most of Europe and parts of northern Africa and Asia will be treated with a partial solar eclipse and the few inhabitants of the Danish Faroe Islands and Norway’s Svalbard archipelago will be lucky enough to witness a total eclipse. Or, you can watch a streaming broadcast here.

In parts of Europe, Google is adding an animated eclipse to their Doodle.

Fans hoping for a grandiose stargazing experience will be disappointed…
