The Reason These Two Celebs Just Donated $1 Million To Syrian Refugees
Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher donated a whopping $1 million to Syrian refugees over the holidays.
The celebrity couple recently gave $500,000 to Save the Children, which will provide measles vaccinations for over 250,000 kids, and another $500,000 to the International Rescue Committee, which helps women and children with education, health care, shelter and sanitation costs.
A charity rep confirmed the donation amount to People magazine on Sunday. (RELATED: Michael Moore Was Just Asked About Hillary Clinton’s Campaign — His Answer Will Shock You)
“By allowing us to make their generous donation to Syrian children public, Sacha and Isla are helping highlight the tragedy of the issue today,” Justin Forsyth, the chief executive of Save the Children, said in a statement.
“These are desperate times for Syrian families facing bombs, bullets and torture in Syria. The couple’s donation will save many thousand of lives and protect some of the most vulnerable children.”
Cohen, a British born actor, and Fisher, an Austrian born actress, welcomed their third child together in April. (RELATED: Clint Eastwood On Republicans: ‘Any Of Them Would Be Better Than What We Got’)
