Angelina Jolie @ Global Action for Children

Angelina Jolie announces the establishment of Global Action for Children (GAC)’s new headquarters in Washington, DC at a news conference held at the National Press Club on Thursday.

Angelina said, “The numbers associated with this problem are staggering. It is overwhelming and the scale of the problem seems to give many an excuse for inaction. In many ways it is better to think of these children one by one — each deserving of our care and attention, each being of equal value, and each being a test of whether justice — or injustice — will prevail.

“I am here to simply ask you to think about orphaned children not as a burden but as a great opportunity. Their education is an investment in our future. … They have had to work very, very hard to survive, but when they are given a chance, they grow strong, stronger than most. … The Lost Boys of Sudan are a great example.”

The GAC is a nonpartisan advocacy organization focused on on increasing funding by $2.5 billion per year by the U.S. government for programs that support orphans and vulnerable children.

    Yeah, her eyes are rather too bright. She is defintiely on something, she needs to eat too. She looks gaunt and malnousrished. Just because she is trying to help the needy does not mean that hse has to look like them.

    Angelina Jolie Launches Global Action for Children, an Advocacy Organization Dedicated to Orphans’ and Children’s Issues

    WASHINGTON, April 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Angelina Jolie appeared at a press conference today to announce the formal launch of Global Action for Children (GAC). GAC is a nonpartisan advocacy organization focused on increasing funding by $2.5 billion per year by the US government for programs that support orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and provide free primary school education in developing countries.

    GAC was formed in 2003 as a campaign organized by faith-based, nongovernmental and student organizations dedicated to OVC and the communities that care for them. GAC’s unique strength lies in the diversity of its partners and allies and its ability to mobilize a broad range of constituencies to advocate for children. Today’s announcement by Ms. Jolie marks the establishment of GAC’s new headquarters in Washington, DC, and formalization of the organization and staffing.

    The press conference followed meetings between Ms. Jolie and GAC Executive Director Jennifer Delaney and senior officials at the U.S. Department of State to discuss policies and funding that will support OVC programs and access to education.

    Ms. Jolie said, “The numbers associated with this problem are staggering. It is overwhelming and the scale of the problem seems to give many an excuse for inaction. In many ways it is better to think of these children one by one — each deserving of our care and attention, each being of equal value, and each being a test of whether justice — or injustice — will prevail.”

    Speakers joining Ms. Jolie and Ms. Delaney at the press conference included Rev. Mpho Tutu, Chairperson of the Global AIDS Alliance Board, and director of the Tutu Institute; Gene Sperling, Director of the Center on Universal Education at the Council on Foreign Relations; Kay Warren, Executive Director of Saddleback Church’s HIV/AIDS Initiative, and wife of Pastor Rick Warren.

    Jennifer Delaney, Executive Director of GAC added, “Angelina Jolie is a global leader on children issues. We are thrilled to have her as the honorary chairperson of the GAC Board. Her support of GAC helps us to ensure that orphans and vulnerable children in developing countries and the communities that care for them get the support they need.”

    Concerned! Says:

    I do not really think she is happy or healthy. I don’t care any way. I think she is searching for something that is elusive and she is not going to get it snatching other people’s husbands. Now no one really respects her charity work. Of course apart from obsessed people on this site.

    She looks fab Says:

    I think the glossy eyes are probably from being tired. You know since she has a gang of 4 children and all.

    omg , seriously.. New thread new losers come.
    must suck to only think mean thoughts about people all the time.

    Better than nothing Says:

    I don’t like her but at least she is doing something. Only that I do not thing any one cares any more about her good deeds. I hope she redeems her self in the coming months because there is something about her these days that I cannot put my finger to. She just looks cold and calculation. She also looks unhealthy and when you compare her to her pre-Brad days, she is now a shadow of herself.

    If she doesn’t eat soon she’ll be getting red cross parcels herself. Jesus, I wish this bimbo (and her himbo boyfriend) would leave this kind of thing to the professionals and stick to playing dress up for a living. It’s pathetic and it would be much kinder of her to use her easily come by money to help quietly rather than use other people’s suffering to get into the mags- poverty to her is like a new handbag. Yuck..

    Brit Says:

    I may not agree with some of her personal choices etc., but I do commend her on her humanitarian efforts and any other person who highlights the needs of others around the world.

    If nothing else, the spotlight that her relationship with Pitt brings to the plight of others is good.

    I wondered what the fuss was about re posting first, is all – it was a coincidence that I was at the site at the time.

    By they way, it is the nature of this board that gets people riled up. Other boards with similar topics are not as caustic!
