Their Italian wedding might have been extravagant, but actor and activist, George Clooney and his new bride, humans rights lawyer, Amal Alamuddin, are keeping true to their activist roots by donating the proceeds from their wedding photos to charity.

TMZ reports that People scored the North American rights to the pics, while Hello! nabbed the European rights in an auction of sorts (apparently the “winner” was determined by which magazine would put out the most money for the photos).

Several sources say the money will go to multiple human rights charities, but the bulk of the cash will go to the Satellite Sentinel Project, (SSP), a charity co-founded by Clooney that uses satellite imagery to monitor war crimes in the Sudan.

A source connected to Clooney told TMZ, “Every photo in both magazines will be saving a life.”

Today’s announcement is a far cry from January’s charitable event for the SSP in which a date with Clooney was auctioned off to the highest bidder. From bachelor to bridegroom in less than a year? Who would have thought?

Congrats to the happy couple!

This brewpub helps veganism shed its stay-home-and-eat-tofu stereotype.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
