Actor Johnny Depp has made a sizeable donation to an Australian children’s hospital as part of an AUD $1.17 million gift to charity.

The donation came after the sale of his non fungible tokens (NFTs), with the actor handing out $US800,000 to various charities, including the Perth Children’s Hospital, the UK-based Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, and Robert Downey Jr’s Footprint Coalition, which raises money for non-profit organisations that are focused on environmental sustainability.

In a tweet, Depp’s NFT community – Never Fear Truth – announced the news, writing: “Johnny Depp’s Never Fear Truth NFT sale was always intended to benefit charities and we are pleased to be able to confirm that nearly $800,000 in total donations have been contributed.”

In response, Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation tweeted: “Thank you so much for your generosity in helping support in helping PCHFWA and WA sick kids. These funds will make a significant impact in helping keep Perth Children’s Hospital world-class for our children and families.”

The Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles was one of the charities that Johnny’s ex-wife, Amber Heard, had pledged to donate a portion of her $7 million divorce settlement to. However, evidence from his recent defamation trial revealed that the actress had not fulfilled her pledge.
