George Clooney, who tied in the knot with British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin, in Venice, Italy during a three-day celebration over the weekend, is reportedly giving a large chunk of the money from their multi-million dollar publishing deals with PEOPLE magazine in the US and HELLO! magazine in the UK to the Satellite Sentinel Project, which the 'Monuments Men' star co-founded in 2010 to monitor war crimes in Sudan.

A source close to the Oscar winner told gossip website TMZ.com: "Every photo in both magazines will be saving a life."

Other sources revealed that the couple decided to sell the publishing rights to the highest bidders to secure the maximum amount of money possible for a small number of their favorite human rights charities.

In March 2012, George - who has a long history of activism in Sudan - was arrested in a protest over the crisis there, but was released shortly afterwards.

Speaking after their recent nuptials, the actor said: "Marriage feels pretty damn great. We're looking forward to everything."

The couple - who got engaged in April after six months of dating - exchanged platinum rings as they wed in front of around 100 guests, including Hollywood actor Matt Damon and U2 front man Bono.
