George Clooney is using his box office appeal to garner a financial boost for the people of L’Aquila, Italy.

In April 2009 the Italian city was devastated by an earthquake that left more than 300 people dead. Clooney hopes to film a movie in the town, and thinks that the movie will revamp the city’s economy and aid those left destitute by the natural disaster.

The people of L’ Aquila are not the only beneficiaries of Clooney’s humanitarian efforts. The Ocean’s Eleven star is also a supporter of Ante Up For Africa, Rock For Darfur, Not On Our Watch, and the World Food Programme. Hopefully, Clooney’s efforts in Italy will harvest the same rewards as his previous charity work.
