George and Amal Clooney Are Boarding A Student

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, George Clooney revealed that him and his wife Amal have taken in a Yazidi refugee from Iraq in their home in Kentucky.

Clooney explained what happened to the now student of University of Chicago: “He was on this bus to Mosul, and ISIS shot the two bus drivers and said, ‘Anybody who wants to go to college, we will shoot them.’ He survived and came to America. He got through all the checks, and once he got through those, it was like, ‘Listen, we got your back. You want to get an education? You want to move your life forward? This is something that we can do.’ ”

George Clooney continues to prove that he isn’t just a nicely tanned salt n pepa fox, but also a great person. Taking in a refugee and paying for their education is far from the first philanthropic thing he’s done; he’s been doing work in and raising money for causes in Sudan for many years and recently announced a $1 million grant to the Southern Poverty Law Center.
