And when Miley tried to explain what inspired her to make such a large donation, she immediately got choked up.

"I can't really talk about it," she said, holding back tears. "I don't know why. It makes me so upset."

"My grandmother's sitting here, my mom's here, and I go home to my seven dogs, and...if I didn't have that anymore, it'd just be really hard."

"So I'm really happy to help any way that I can," she concluded. "And I hope people understand, and can put themselves in those people's shoes, and just know what it feels like to have everything taken away from you."

While Miley's donation is super generous, you don't need $500,000 in order to help out. BuzzFeed has put together a list with lots of ways you can help those affected by the hurricane.

Miley is also accepting donations for Harvey relief through her charity, The Happy Hippie Foundation.

Thanks for stepping up to the plate, Miley <3.
