George and Amal Clooney Commit $3.5 million to Syrian refugee children

George and Amal Clooney have committed to help 3,000 Syrian refugee children go to school in Lebanon, Reuters reports.

The new parents to twins Ella and Alexander hope to help 200,000 children who are not receiving an education after fleeing the war in neighboring Syria.

The Clooney Foundation for Justice has teamed up with Google and HP Inc. to help UNICEF and the Lebanese Ministry of Education open seven “second shift” schools, which offer special afternoon classes exclusively for the relocated Syrian children. Lebanon currently has over 1 million Syrian refugees, with around half of them children.

George Clooney is getting to be known more for humanitarian work than he is for his work as an actor.  It's refreshing to see someone do so much good with what they have been blessed with!
