Perrsyburg native shares laugh, Sudan activism with George Clooney

EDITOR'S NOTE: This version corrects the first name of Aaron Shapiro.

Aaron Shapiro, the son of Greg and Pam Shapiro of Perrysburg, has been working in Sudan since 2007 for an international Christian relief agency and bumped into actor George Clooney, who long has been an activist for Sudan.

The actor was in Juba to support the African nation's referendum on independence for Southern Sudan, calling it the first step in a long road toward peace.
