Brad & Angelina's $100K Donation

Brad & Angelina's $100K Donation

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $100,000 to help build the first modern medical facility in Duk County, Sudan called “The Duk Lost Boys Clinic.”

The donation was mad through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation and will go directly to to Direct Change, a nonprofit that raises financial support for grassroots projects in Africa.

Said John Dau, the Director of Direct Change’s Sudan Project, “Words cannot express my gratitude and gratitude of the people of Duk County Sudan. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt demonstrate the American spirit of generosity. Hopefully, their donation will inspire others to join with us to rebuild southern Sudan.”

Dau‘s story was featured in the documentary God Grew Tired of Us, which Brad executive produced. The facility is scheduled to open later this spring and serve upwards of 150,000 people.

In adoptions news… Brad and Angelina will reportedly earn $2.3 million for photographs of their newly adopted son, Pax. The couple earned a reported $4.7 million for photographs of of daughter Shiloh just after she was born.

    Only $100,000 when they netted $2.3 million – HOW CHEAP CAN THEY BE????

    Happy Girl – no matter what, you STILL can’t come up with that cash. So why give your heart an attack. Chill

    GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS!

    May they receive continuous and abundant blessings!

    Brad and Angie, thank you for sharing your blessings to the less fortunate. The angels are joyously singing praises in heaven.

  • tabloids

    Keep up the good works Brad and Angie. God bless you and the kids.

  • coolspark

    at least they’re doing something, happy girl.
    that’s saying more than what other celebs do…
    and it’s not like it’s their first contributions… they make contributions to many places…

  • Besane

    Great work, Jolie-Pitt! They will probably establish something similar to Maddox project in Cambodia, AIDS children’s hospital in Ethiopia, like Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt Foundation in Vietnam with whatever they get from the media. What a pair, these two—they really are doers, not whinners.

  • Original Curious

    I think “Happy Girl” forgot to take her happy pills. What a sour lemon head! :roll: They have a lot of charities, and an advisor to help them know how much to give when they want to give….I’m sure the clinic will do a lot of good with what they gave. Remember, they give a lot that we don’t hear about in the “news”, like the money for the Cancer Research Center ad.

    Thank you JJ and Audrey for letting us read this. I am just amazed at this couple. I know they have inspired many less fortunate than themselves to give…let’s hope they also inspire the ones who ARE as fortunate as they are.

    This shouldn’t amaze or surprise anyone, they’re givers ‘time an money’ I see something really big in their future, bigger than anything they’ve done already.

  • gossip

    love them….can’t wait to see pic of the whole fam together.

  • viva

    The hand of a giver is always on top. I pray that Brad and Angie’s hands will always be on top. You define new meanings for celebrities. God bless you. I hope Pax is adjusting well to his new home. Papa Pitt is kind and gentle. Viva Brangelina.

  • newlywed

    i have no problem with 100k, although i still think its far too small for the 2 million they got from the pic of pham, i have problem will celeb who does always feel the need TO BROADCAST every donation they give specially in the middle of tons of negative publicities. Real givers are just MUM about what they give, they dont like to publicize it just to get a ”pat in the back”.

  • viva

    Paparrazis take a lot of celeb’s photographs and tabloids make up lies every week all to benefit no one from the huge amount of money they make. No one is crying foul at these people. Therefore, I support Brad and Angie to collect money for their pictures because at least it will benefit someone.

  • wan

    All the money goes to their Foundation to give to charity right? i’ve seen some ads in People magazine that are funded by their Jolie-Pitt Foundation, like unhcr, cedars-sinai and another i can’t remember , i like how they use the money to help spotlight the organizations. it is always a good thing. at least they are not spending it on materialistic things that other celebs would buy.

    Oh my! You certainly flew out of the last thread and on to this new one like a bat out of hell, didnt you? And like the little vermin you are, youre gonna leave your nasty little droppings on this thread too, arent you? Obsessed much?

  • Lady G

    Thanks for the new thread, Jared.

    The Jolie-Pitt’s make me proud to be an American and a fan of theirs.

    Every dollar helps and I am sure the director is grateful to receive any help he gets.

  • honest

    people mag denied the 2 million. I don’t think they would pay in the millions for an adopted kid.

    In your last thread ,you complain about why was Maniston be brought up in every BA thread ? You are the one who started it.
    cheap ? at least they are giving back. Never heard Mansiton with her 110 million dollar fat account donating anything. aside from donating a T shirt with her signature to the Pediatric Cancer center, never did we heard a report of her doing charity or donation, other female celebrities in the forbes top 10 milionaires do give back except Maniston . thats real cheap !!!!!!!!!

    Hold your horses idiot. You don’t know if they actually got $2.3M. Jared did not name his source.

    People magazine stated that’s not true and said it’s a ridiculous number.

  • checkers

    the thing is #16… the reason why they are comfortable in saying or declaring the amounts of donations to many chariities is because they want to set an example to many people that can do and that how easy it is do it, I’m sure they are many people out there not only celebs that have capacity in giving, but the point is, they don’t… by doing this, they can inspire alot of people in doing the same. they don’t want to praise about this!

  • JJ LOONIES SUCK

    ——– WOW THAT’S A PRETTY HUGE AMOUNT THEY EARNED IN LESS THAN A YEAR AFTER PIMPING THE CHILDREN!!! AND THEY ONLY DONATED 100 K???? HOW CHEAP IS THAT?

  • bluemoon

    I don’t believe the 2 million either.

  • bdj

    The money that BP and AJ received via photos, their own donations goes into the
    Jolie-Pitt foundation and from there the donations are distributed to various charities. Some charites, depending on the amount needed will get $100,000 or other charities will get more. The point is, all the money that has been announced/confirmed has gone into this foundation and I am sure that we will hear through various organizations’ Press releases of many more such contributions as we have in the past. I admire them for being devoted
    humantarians and I wish BAMPZS all the best.
    Thanks for the new thread Just Jared. Peace to all.

    Sorry that you were dumped. He deserves better. I feel for him because you are crazy.

  • jolierocks

    Wonderful news! :)

  • viva

    They continually give not just to one person, they appropriate monies to their different charities. If only one person annouces what he received and others are quiet about what they received, you cannot judge the total money they give out, therefore saying thank you is good enough. I’ll rather focus on the causes of their charities and what needs to be done than whine and complain about what someone else is doing, because they are doing it.

  • checkers

    jared please delete #23 .. she is scary!

  • [Fug Face Maniston]

    Un’Happy Girl, You’re famous. Congrats

  • honest

    wow someone went off the deep end. Be vewy, vewy afwaid.

  • Lady G

    Why are people engaging the haters? We all know that they are seeking attention to try and turn each and every thread about BAMPZS into a cesspool.

    So why play their games. Jared used to be a wonderful place to post but now it is becoming another PH, TMZ, etc.

    We have a lot to celebrate instead each thread is the same old, same old.

    Jolie-Pitt’s are once again doing something to save someone life and for me that is better than the tit for tat, IMO!

    Agree, Tom Cruise gives more than the Jolie Pitts and he does not run to people magazine to make public EVERY DONATION he makes.

  • Websurfer

    afraid is sitting afraid in the dark!! too much time on your hands sweetie!!

  • kmillz

    Its funny how people can complain about how much money she is donating, when they have donated $0. she is probably splitting the money amongst other foundations.

    I read the first paragraph of Afraid’s little essay and stopped reading it.So fans please ignore afraid
