Holywood actor George Clooney and wife Amal announced they would be making a donation in the name of their 8-month-old twins, Alexander and Ella to “March For Our Lives” an event formed in the aftermath of last week’s deadly shooting at a Florida high school.
“Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country,” the Clooneys said.
Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg are also taking a cue from George and Amal Clooney and followed making their own sizable donations.
There is also a national walkout planned for March 14. Students, staff and parents are being urged to quit schools for 17 minutes at 10am.
“Students and staff have the right to teach and learn in an environment free from the worry of being gunned down in their classrooms or on their way home from school,” wrote organisers.
