Golden Globe-winning actor and Oscar front-runner Leonardo DiCaprio has donated money for a cause that is dear to his heart.
According to this teleSUR article, the funds are going towards several environmental groups, which include one that DiCaprio has worked with the victims of the Chevron oil disaster. $3.4 million has been promised by the actor for causes in Ecuador.
His foundation's official website indicated that the money will "empower indigenous people in the Amazon," and they will subsequently support a collaboration between four indigenous tribes in the region, which will stand against oil and timber interests.
