During his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live Ryan Gosling took the opportunity  to talk about his recent trip to the eastern Congo. The actor discussed how some of the everyday products we have in our homes are the reason behind one of the biggest wars in the world.

Gosling said, “In our cell phones and our computers and in our ipods there are these minerals, minerals that come from the Congo and our consumption of these products is fueling one of the worst wars in the world. We want our products conflict free.”

The 30-year-old actor plugged the organization Raise Hope For Congo and urged Jimmy Kimmel‘s viewers to visit the site and send letters to companies that use the minerals at the heart of the conflict.

During his trip the star met with civil society organizations, human rights defenders and survivors. He even took footage of the people and places, with the plan to cut it together and share some of what he has seen with the world. If you watch the video below, you’ll see some adorable footage of a little girl dancing. Gosling even tries to get the audience to emulate the dance moves.

Being ever modest, when Kimmel said that “Most actors only care about themselves,” Gosling replied, “I just did it for the applause.”

Well, I’m certainly clapping my hands! Check out the clip below.
