I recommend this story because of its content and how relatve the informaton is- with all the tradegies going on around the world and the Oscars quickly approaching. I enjoyed reading about Clooney's thoughts for other places in the dark and the actions he has been taking and plans to take more in the future. This story could have been improved if more time was spent contacting other celebrities or interviewing people Clooney works with. He is not the only one helping people in need and using his celebrity power. He obviously has made an incredible impact and this article does a lot for his cause through bringing publicity to him, but there are others in Hollywood and not in Hollywood looking to be heard and seen as well.
