Splitting from Johnny Depp, Amber Heard got $7 million divorce settlement and decided to donate them to charity.
“As described in the restaraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves.” Heard said in a statement as cited from Aceshowbiz.
“The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU, with a particular focus to stop violence against women, and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years alongside organizations like the Art of Elysium.” she continued. “Over the years, I have seen firsthand how more funding for staffing, better equipment and better medication can make the difference between life or death for a child.”
“I know these organizations will put the funds to good use and look forwards to continuing to support them in the future. Hopefully, this experience results in a positive change in the lives of people who need it the most.” the actress added by revealing her intention.
In response to Amber’s decision to donate the entire money, President and CEO of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles Paul S. Viviano stated, “On behalf of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles’ leadership, staff and the thousands of brave patients and their families who will benefit from this donation, I would like to thank Amber Heard for this tremendous gift.”
“Her generosity will support the lifesaving treatments and cures that Children’s Hospital Los Angeles provides for critically ill children each year.” he added.
Anthony D. Romero as the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union also showed gratitude for her generosity, “We could not be more thankful for Ms. Heard’s support- she can be confident that this gift will help other women live safely and freely.”
