George Clooney Sells Wedding Photos For A Good Cause

"Every photo in PEOPLE and HELLO! magazines will be saving a life."

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin are donating most of the profits from the sale of their wedding photographs to the Satellite Sentinel Project, which the Monuments Men star co-founded in 2010 to monitor war crimes in Sudan.

The 53-year-old actor, who tied the knot with British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, in Venice, Italy during a three-day celebration over the weekend, is reportedly giving a large chunk of the money from their multi-million dollar publishing deals with PEOPLE magazine in the US and HELLO! magazine in the UK to the Satellite Sentinel Project.

A source close to the Oscar winner told gossip website "Every photo in both magazines will be saving a life."

Other sources revealed that the couple decided to sell the publishing rights to the highest bidders to secure the maximum amount of money possible for a small number of their favorite human rights charities.

In March 2012, George—who has a long history of activism in Sudan—was arrested in a protest over the crisis there, but was released shortly afterwards.

Speaking after their recent nuptials, the actor said: "Marriage feels pretty damn great. We're looking forward to everything."

The couple—who got engaged in April after six months of dating—exchanged platinum rings as they wed in front of around 100 guests, including Hollywood actor Matt Damon and U2 frontman Bono.
