Hollywood actor George Clooney and his barrister-wife Amal Clooney have donated around 500,000 dollars in the name of their eight-month-old twins, Ella and Alexander to a cause calling for stern gun laws in the United States.
The couple has also announced taking part in 'The March for Our Lives' event. In a statement, Clooney praised the survivors of the Florida mass school shooting for their bravery. "Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Douglas High School. Our family will be there on March 24 to support this incredible generation of young people from all over the country, and in the name of our children Ella and Alexander, we are donating 500,000 dollars to help pay for this groundbreaking event. Our children's lives depend on it," he said in a statement. Survivors of the Florida mass shooting rallied in Fort Lauderdale on Saturday and called for tougher gun laws. One of the survivors named, Emma Gonzalez, demanded the lawmakers to take steps to prevent mass school shootings in the future.
