LOS ANGELES -- Nicolas Cage has donated $2 million to help former child soldiers worldwide. The donation by the Oscar-winning actor will help provide shelters and medical and psychological rehabilitation services, said Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA.

Cox accepted the donation Wednesday at a United Nations Conference in New York. Amnesty International will administer the funds.

"I understand that this pledge is not a solution for the problem," Cage, 42, 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."

Cage said he has worked with Amnesty International for more than two years.

The United Nations estimates there are at least 300,000 child soldiers participating in armed conflicts in the world today.

'The Weather Man' Stills
In this FILM - Cage's character debates his professional versus his personal issues and by doing so turns his FATE and LIFE into a relative success - in the end...!

Can WE NOW SEE that by Sharing and Saving Lives - WE CAN and WILL Succeed in showing the WORLD WE CAN LOVE and not teach hate - as the only way WE WILL Survive and Live Together - Domestically, Globally and Internationally!

In Keeping in the FAITH:
