Oprah Winfrey is taking cues from her celebrity friends and putting her money where her mouth is.

Just hours after George and Amal Clooney publicly pledged half a million dollars to the anti-gun March for Our Lives rally, Oprah took to social media to announce her own generous donation.

“George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives,’” Oprah tweeted Tuesday night. “These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.”

March for Our Lives is an upcoming gun control rally that was organized in the wake of the deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High Schoolin Parkland, Florida. The tragedy left 17 people dead, including 14 students.
