Johnny Depp is giving some big bucks to charity.

This week, the actor donated nearly $800,000 to children’s hospital charities through the sale of NFTs from his community Never Fear Truth.

Some have also taken the donation as a subtle dig at ex-wife Amber Heard, who had pledged to donate her $7-million divorce settlement to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, as well as the ACLU.

“The donation will be divided equally between the ACLU, with a particular focus to stop violence against women, and the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, where I have worked as a volunteer for the past 10 years,” she said at the time. “Money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves.”

During the recent defamation trial involving Depp and Heard, the actress admitted that she hadn’t fulfilled the pledge to the ACLU, donating only $1.2 million of the promised $3.5 million. It is not known if she fulfilled the pledge to the Children’s Hospital.
