In a statement, George Clooney said he and Amal are donating the $500,000 (£357,325) in the names of their eight-month-old twins.

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Delaney Tarr speaks at a rally for gun control at the Broward County Federal Courthouse in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. on February 17, 2018.

George claimed, "we're donating $500,000 to help pay for this groundbreaking event; our children's lives" depend on the movement.

The Clooneys said earlier Tuesday that they would be donating half a million dollars to the event and personally participating in the event on March 24.

Five students who survived the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., announced on their plans to push for better gun control.

Fox News host and reliable Donald Trump supporter Sean Hannity is all in favor of the actor George Clooney running for president in 2020, a possibility floated by The Drudge Report on Tuesday under the banner: "Clooney 2020 Vision?"

It was not immediately clear whether they and Winfrey would attend the march. "I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to 'March For Our Lives.' These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we've had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard".

"We are overwhelmed with the support, and we can't wait to march". The march will be held on March 24 in Washington D.C.to demand action on gun control.

The "March for Our Lives" is one of several rallies being organized by students across the country in support of stronger gun laws, challenging politicians they say have failed to protect them, according to Reuters.

"The "March For Our Lives" is going to be in every major city and we are organizing it so students everywhere can beg for our lives".

"Change is coming. And it starts now, inspired by and led by the kids who are our hope for the future".
