By George Look What He Started

Yesterday we were telling you about George Clooney and his wife Amal giving 500-thousand dollars to students of last week’s school shootings in Florida.

Now Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg have stepped up to the plate to pitch in money for the students as well in an effort to bring an end to gun violence in schools.

Oprah says she will match Clooney and his wife, Amal while Spielberg and Dreamworks Animation founder Jeffrey Katzenberg had also pledged donations.

Last week’s school shooting in Florida has sparked a wave of student protests aimed at making the nation’s classrooms safer.

Students are mobilizing a March 24th march in Washington and elsewhere to urge lawmakers to enact tougher gun control.
