Buddies George Clooney and Don Cheadle will be honored at the 8th World Summit of Nobel Peace Prize Laureates in Rome.
Those two have done enormous work to promote peace in Darfur, for that they're going to receive the 2007 Peace Summit Award.
The summit will be held next month and will include people like former Soviet President Michael Gorbachev, former President Jimmy Carter, the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu.
Archbishop Tutu -i love that dude- said in a statement: "I am always moved when I see artists such as George and Don use their positions to speak up for the most vulnerable of our fellow human beings."
In the past two years Clooney and Cheadle have both traveled to Darfur to bring attention to the refugees there, spoken to government leaders about the ongoing ethnic and tribal conflict in the region and appeared in the 2007 documentary Darfur Now.
I guess they really do deserve such an honor ... great job you two! Kudos!
I hope other celebrities will follow in your footsteps.
