Cage is donating $2 million to Amnesty International.

Oscar-winning actor Nicolas Cage is following the footstep of his many other celebrity pals who have made donation a trend among Hollywood public figures. The star is reported to have donated $2 million to Amnesty International, such amount will be used to help fund rehabilitation shelters, medical services and psychological and reintegration services for an estimated 300,000 former child soldiers.

"I understand that this pledge is not a solution for the problem," Cage said when he announced the contribution by video. "It's my hopeful wish that today's discussions on this tragic subject at the United Nations conference may bring us closer to eradicating the nightmare of child soldiers", he continued.

In the meantime, action movie star Jackie Chan is reported to donate half his fortune to charity. That's according to Hong Kong media on Thursday. "I have also written down (a will), ... half of it goes to my charity and the remaining goes to my wife and son," Chan said at a press conference. The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation, which was founded in 1988, goes to help the needy and to support the performing arts.
