George Clooney Supports the Homeless During Visit to Cafe in Scotland
Does George Clooney have the warmest heart in Hollywood? It certainly seems so.
On Thursday in Scotland, the Tomorrowland star casually stepped into Edinburgh’s Social Bite café to showcase his philanthropic side, People reports. The 54-year-old hunk hung out among regular customers who can participate in the business’s charitable “suspended" coffee and food program, which allows them to pay for a menu item that a local homeless person could then claim. The cafe donates 100% of its profits to homeless people and one in four of its staff used to live on the streets themselves.
“It’s pretty amazing and I’m looking forward to seeing it. I haven’t seen it up close yet,” Clooney told reporters outside of the café. “I like what they’re doing. I think it’s a very important cause. I think the idea that we can all participate in everyone’s difficulties is really important. You can help people out by buying a sandwich.” Mr. Amal Clooney also graciously took a moment to pose for pictures with the shop’s employees and greet eager fans who awaited his arrival as early as 7 a.m.
This isn’t his first dip in the philanthropic pond. Clooney (who’s currently in Scotland to promote Not On Our Watch, the charity he co-founded with Matt Damon and Brad Pitt) also recently adopted a 4-year-old shelter dog named Millie. We can’t wait to see what good deed the handsome actor performs next.
