The United Nations Development Program has appointed Antonio Banderas as a Goodwill Ambassador in the fight against poverty.
The Spanish actor will be working to bring more focus to the Millennium Development Goals, which is attempting to reduce the amount of worldwide poverty in HALF by 2015.
Banderas said in a statement:
"Poverty robs us of our potential as a people, preventing us from being all that we can be. This is why it is so important to mobilize all of our efforts to defeat it."
We think it's wonderful that he's using his success to try and help those less fortunate.
