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.

    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.”

  • tina

    She looks upset like she was crying or something. Too bad for people who hate her she looks gorgeous anyway. GAC is a great idea.

  • Polka

    OMG, she doesn’t look healthy at all… :(

  • Meli

    Thank you Jared,you are really quick.Angie looks stunning as always and is really great how she stays so focus to her work.She is an angel.

  • Liz

    She did some work on her nose and her cheeks, and whats with the bugs under her eyes? I hope she is not on drugs again.

  • bella

    Finally, one silver lining amidst my boredom! Way to go Jared! Just love, love, love anything to do with the Jolie-Pitts!.Hey, any way (call me insane!) you can find out if they’re looking for a nanny? I will quit my almost amazing job for them!!! :D

  • hanna

    Angelina looks professional with that outfit, and look at the purse, the heel, i remember when Team Lara Croft posted about GG, she said gourges, this is how to attend an award, now i am saying this is how to attend an launched

  • Concerned!

    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

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

  • Cutie Pie

    Angie you are amazing. You’ve got it all. Beauty, intelligence, talent, good heart and Brad Pitt!

  • julia

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

  • Better than nothing

    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.

  • Bettina

    No wonder she is named one of the top communicator’s of our time! Very intelligent woman. Thanks JJ for bringing these photo’s and info so fast.

  • English rose

    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

    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!

  • Better than nothing

    Glossy eyes from being tired? That is new, tired eyes are dull. But now that you mention it, her eyes look too bright, I am suspicious. Ols habits die hard. May be all the pressure is getting to her.

  • sad

    Some of the posters here like Sandra/julia are high as a kite..lmao. It amazes me what jelousy of another human being brings out. Jealousy that is why this losers continure to post crap… Anyway Angelina looks stunning, a extremley beautiful woman.

  • The real lou

    Notice how the trolls and haters are here in 2 seconds flat when new pictures are posted!What a very sad life some of you must lead to spend yours days lurking and waiting for pictures of a woman that you claim to hate just so you can spill your vile and lies!You guys are the ones obsessed,most people tend to avoid what they don’t like.NOT SEEK IT OUT!Angelina looks beautiful as always.God her hair is getting long.Thanks Jared for the new pictures!

  • Her veins are gross

    Those veins are freaking me out; she is way too skinny.

  • julia

    sad I think you are confused.. I am a fan of Angie, not sure what you are talking about…

  • Better than nothing

    Brit, I don’t think the spotlight as a result of her affair with Pitt brings anything good, if anything it detracts all attention from her work and people concetrate on calling her names instead of realising there is a problem. May be the only good is that now she can adopt as many kids for whichever reason, at least they don’t go hungry.

  • carrienae

    I really, really like Angelina and has always been since Hackers.

  • GOD BLESS THE JOLIE-PITTS

    God Bless the Jolie-Pitts.

    You are a truly blessed woman Angie. May God continue to light your path!

    Thanks for your concern and love for the orphans of the world.

  • G

    beautiful woman – inside and outside. she is luminous, even with minimal make up. but, more important, she is doing so much good. an example to follow.

  • She looks fab

    She obviously doesn’t care what you or any other person thinks they know about her. Despite what people say about her or her looks she still goes out there and fights for her causes. She’s not gonna stop just because You don’t like it.

  • Honestly

    LMAO @ all of you criticizing her looks. Angelina on her worst day looks better than all of you on your best.

  • Beat it.

    Her eyes are toooooooooooooooooo bright.

    The people who concentrate on callin her names instead of realizing the problem are tabloid readers. Damn heffas don’t care about anything other than gossip and themselves anyway.

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Donate $1 Million to Global Action for Children

    The Associated Press
    Wednesday, September 20, 2006; 5:06 PM

    WASHINGTON—Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are giving gifts of $1 million each to two humanitarian organizations, an adviser to the couple said Wednesday.
    The recipients are Global Action for Children and Medecins sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders.

    “In the most troubled parts of the world _ places that much of the world has abandoned _ MSF is always there,” said Jolie in a statement issued by Trevor Neilson, the couple’s philanthropic and political adviser. “I have seen these brave men and women working in war zones and horrific conditions and I deeply admire them.”

    Jolie, who co-starred with Pitt in the 2005 film “Mr. & Mrs. Smith,” is a goodwill ambassador for the U.N. High Commission for Refugees.
    Jennifer Delaney, U.S. director for Global Action for Children, expressed her thanks for the gift from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.

    “Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt not only care, but more important, are taking concrete action to address the fact that there will be 20 million children orphaned by AIDS by 2010, and millions more orphaned by tuberculosis, malaria and conflict or whose parents are sick and dying,” she said.

    Delaney said the vast majority of these children are in the care of extended families and communities that need support to overcome the ravages of HIV/AIDS and poverty.

  • HELLO!

    At least she doesn’t look like this.

    Karma is right.

  • Angietothemax

    She looks really pretty and natural. Barely any make up on. But I think it’s time for her to rest and just be. She’s wearing herself out trying to be everything to everyone. It’s really hard being wife, mother, actress, activist, & philanthropist. I do think she is trying to distract herself from the grief of the loss of her mother and doing too many things at once. Almost like she herself is running out of time.
