Less than 48 hours ago, Miley Cyrus was crying about Donald Trump winning the election and becoming the next president of the United States. Today, she's smiling—here's why. 

In a newly posted Instagram video, the passionate Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders supporter addressed her fans with noticeably lifted spirits. "Ok, so no more crying from me. I am accepting and hopeful, inspired and smiling," she said into the camera tears-free. 

The Voice judge announced that, in tandem with her Happy Hippie Foundation for homeless LGBTQ youth, she is also launching #HopefulHippies with a pledge to support education for young people. 

"Myself and Happy Hippie are putting education for young people at the very top of our list of priorities in honor, of course, Hillary Clinton," she said in the video. 

"I am so excited to see what we can do together because we have made such an impact on the LGBTQ community fighting homelessness and injustice for everyone," she continued. "I love you all so much. Peace is what we need. We do need to be stronger together. Thank you, thank you for making a difference."

The songstress and civil advocate elaborated on her cause in the video's caption with a lengthy message to encourage unity and progress. 

"Many of us aren't sure what to do after the election, but now more than ever it's important for us to come together and take action to work for the America we want. That's why we're launching #HopefulHippies, and I'm asking you to get involved in your own community and make a commitment to the issues you care about, whether it's donating, volunteering or showing your support!" she wrote. 

"I'm starting off by pledging to education, and I'm excited Happy Hippie will now be supporting classroom projects and schools with DonorsChoose!! If you need ideas to get you started, check out to find local opportunities near you supporting the issues we care about. Share your pledge to take action in your community using #HopefulHippies."

"Can't wait to see yours, I'll be reposting some of my favorite ones! #strongertogether."
