*George and Amal Clooney will donate $500,000 to the March for Our Lives, a gun control demonstration organized by students who endured Wednesday’s tragic shooting in Parkland, Fla.

The Clooneys will also participate in the march on Washington, D.C., according to Variety.

“Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Stoneman Douglas High School,” George Clooney said in a statement on Tuesday. “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, and in the name of our children Ella and Alexander, we’re donating $500,000 to help pay for this groundbreaking event. Our children’s lives depend on it.”

Other celebrities, including Lady Gaga, have also pledged their support on social media.
