George and Amal Clooney have donated $500,000 to United States students organising gun control marches.

On March 24, students and supporters of March for Our Lives will march through Washington D.C.to call for stricter gun laws in the face of mass school shootings across the nation.

Following last Wednesday's shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida that left 17 students dead, George and Amal Clooney have announced they will donate $500,000 to the survivors' planned March for Our Lives anti-gun demonstration. The march will take place in Washington, DC on March 24, and will advocate for reducing gun violence.

The Never Again account, representing survivors, tweeted: "We want to express extreme gratitude for the incredible donation that George Clooney and his family have made". Billionaire media mogul Oprah Winfrey joined the cause, pledging to match the Clooneys' donation on Tuesday.

George claimed, "we're donating $500,000 to help pay for this groundbreaking event; our children's lives" depend on the movement.

Asked if he had made special plans to deal with Messi, Conte said: "This is a good question". There's a bit of rivalry between the teams, which is a good thing.

"George and Amal, I couldn't agree with you more", Winfrey, 64, wrote.

The couple has also announced taking part in "The March for Our Lives" event.

"The young students in Florida and now across the country are already demonstrating their leadership with a confidence and maturity that belies their ages", Spielberg said, according to Deadline.

Film studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg has also pledged $500,000, Variety reported.

The alleged gunman, 19-year-old former student Nikolas Cruz, is reported to have been legally sold the assault rifle used in the February 14 attack despite having a history of mental health issues.
