Planet Saver Don Cheadle to Be Honored by U.N.


Don Cheadle
Having successfully convinced world leaders to sign a treaty, he would be promoted to be a Goodwill Ambassador in Rwanda next month.


Hollywood star Don Cheadle is set to be honored as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for his work to save the planet. The "Hotel Rwanda" actor first teamed up with the U.N. last year to front its climate change campaign, urging world leaders to sign a treaty limiting greenhouse gas emissions.

Cheadle's efforts have won him high praise from organization officials and he will be promoted to a Goodwill Ambassador during a special ceremony next month. He says, "I will be named officially in Rwanda on June 5th, a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Environmental programme. I'll be in Rwanda on June 5th."

Cheadle's philanthropy work does not stop there - he is also a key voice in the call for an end to the genocide in Darfur, Sudan, establishing the Not On Our Watch charity with his "Ocean's Eleven" co-stars George Clooney, Brad Pitt and Matt Damon.
