Amber Heard has given a hefty sum to a charity that is near and dear to her which is the American civil liberties union. The amount was a whopping $350,000 to the organization days before her divorce from the Pirates of the Carribean actor Johnny Depp. The said divorced is already finalized.

Amber has not yet given the settlement money to charity following her divorce from Depp. The good reason was, the divorce has not been finalized yet. When the former couple reached their agreement last august, the famous actress promised to donate $7 million that she will earn from the divorce to the entire charity. She planned to split the money between ACLU and the children's hospital of Los Angeles, with a particular focus to stop the violence against women.

As reported by Huffington Post, Amber Heard's lawyer Pierce O'Donnell said she was not able to donate the funds since the divorce document has not been signed yet. According to her attorney, the settlement documents are still being finalized and will be signed this week. Johnny Depp was obligated by the settlement to pay Amber Heard. In return, she will honor pledges to children's hospital and the American civil liberties union.

Amber's commitment to protecting the victims of domestic violence and helping the sick O'Donnell continued. Her recent PSA on the domestic violence does not violate her settlement agreement with Johnny Depp. Amber heard would still continue to lend her voice to the rising chorus of women speaking out about this terrible scourge on the American family.

In August the ACLU confirmed to E! News, that they had received the first installment in Amber Heard's name though the full $7 million has not been donated yet. The CHLA also received a check in her name. Meanwhile amber released a very emotional PSA over the weekend; she teamed up with the #girlglaze project to address violence against women and domestic abuse.
