Actress Amber Heard, who recently divorced Johnny Depp, has reportedly donated her divorce settlement to charity. The couple reached their agreement on Tuesday, Aug. 16, a day ahead of their scheduled court appearance. Heard's final settlement totaled seven million dollars. These funds will be split between the American Civil Liberties Union, or ACLU, and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
Reportedly, the ACLU is to use its portion of Heard's donation specifically for its efforts in stopping violence against women. The actress accused Depp of domestic violence during their relationship and filed for a restraining order against Depp in May of this year. Heard said she has volunteered for the children's hospital for more than ten years and understands how her donation can make all "the difference between life and death for a child."
