On more than one occasion, we've cited the awesomeness of Angelina Jolie, due to her humanitarian efforts around the world.
But George Clooney reminded us this week that Angelina isn't the only gorgeous, talented star that uses her fame, money and influence for good.
The Oscar winner arrived in Southern Sudan a couple days ago in anticipation of a vote for the country's independence and, unfortunately, a possible civil war. "If you knew a tsunami, or Katrina or a Haiti earthquake was coming, what would you do to save people?" Clooney asked.
Journalist Ann Curry is accompanying Clooney through a region west of Darfur, a place rarely seen by foreigners."In 100 days, people here will vote on whether to secede from the rest of Sudan, and war, even genocide is predicted," Curry blogged.
Curry refers to the area as "one of the most desperate places on Earth," as she and Clooney hope to bring make the rest of the world aware of the plight of those who reside there.
So far, the actor has visited a mass grave from 2008 and traveled through the unstable border of North and South Sudan. It's unknown for how long he plays to stay there, but we greatly admire his efforts.
