Doug Pitt to Brother Brad: Let's Care to Learn!

Doug Pitt to Brother Brad: Let's Care to Learn!

Doug Pitt, the younger brother of Hollywood actor Brad Pitt is speaking out about his “Care to Learn” Project, which is all about kids’ health, hunger and hygiene.

Says Doug, “The idea was to help kids that show up on a school day with an immediate need. We need to get to them quick, obviously. So we set up this fund to do just that. Last week, we had a kid need clothes and food. And within 20 minutes – from the phone call – counselors, teachers, principals, make a call to the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools. And they’re on it. They now have the funds to address that urgent need.”

For more information, visit At the website, you can see one of the Care to Learn Founders include Springfield, Missouri business man Doug Pitt, who recognized the need and is coordinating a solution to this growing issue.

Also a founder of the project is the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, a Humanitarian Fund supported by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

Watch the video below of Doug Pitt talking about his “Care to Learn” fund!

  • hello

  • Tijen

    The one picture of Brad and Doug’s dad that I saw shows that he is also very good looking. Sister Julie is also pretty. I get the feeling that they are all down to earth folks which is so nice.

  • Lady G

    Thanks for the thread Jared.

    Big props to Doug and such.

    Just a thought about about JPF/Doug’s contribution — is he helping fund the ‘Care to Learn’ program or is it all coming from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation?

  • new

    The Pitt brothers are great and hot too.

    @ Tijen

    Thank you! I turned 45 today (Brad and me are born in the same year) and I am a huge fan of his and all his family, just amazing to me, how much love they have found with each other.
    I lived in Springfield/MO for 6 years and part of my heart still is there, very glad to hear the Pitt’s are giving back to the comunity.
    People there are kind and very helpful and this is IMHO the reason, Brad is so down to earth.

    This information has been out for awhile. This site is slow in posting information. Read about this from a link from another thread.
    Wonder where the JPs have flown off to.

  • Tijen

    Hello Julia!
    Hope your day is going well.
    I’ve had to have a root canal couple of days ago. Trying to take my mind off of it by hanging out here at JJ for a while.

    Julia, what’s going on with our weather? Did we really have that 78 degree weather last weekend, or was I dreaming?

    More Brad Pitt scoops from Smithville

    By Chris Garcia | Thursday, April 17, 2008, 03:26 PM

    Michael Corcoran snuck this tidbit into our blog’s comments section, but it deserves full play:

    The Smithville Times is reporting that Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and the fam left town today. I had heard Pitt wouldn’t be done filming until the end of April, so maybe he’s coming back for a couple days.

  • Tijen

    I’d say Texas has been good to them.
    They were able to keep their privacy while there.

  • vickifromtexas

    happy birthday andreadoria. = )

  • http://http NORMAN’S MOM

    sooooooo, Pitt’s brother is his PR.

    SOON watch them trying to convince you Pitt is the “humanitarian”, the first and the biggest one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I remember him saying he was just an actor who puts makeup on.

    BUT NOW this is in VOGUE!


    What a joke!

    Angie, you created monsters, girl!

  • tabitha

    It was probably one of the best places they have been to the past couple of years for peace and quiet and very little gawking from people n the streets. I thought NYC last fall was the worst esp where Maddox went to school. This time around , I don’t think we saw a single photo of the kids at their respective schools.

    Texas is a good state. Houston took in a lot of Katrina victims and many still lived there. Austin seem to have been a good place for the Jolie-Pitts. New York was quite the scene. Seeing the people clapping and cheering was mind blowing. The travel adventures of the Jolie-Pitts. Stay tune for next destination. Peace to all.

    That is great. I hope the project is a success for the students in need in Springfield, MO, home of the Activist/Actor Papa Pitt.

    Angelina is heaven sent to the Pitt Family.

    She seem to have infected them with her caring and giving to the poor.

  • yep

    NORMAN’S MOM @ 04/17/2008 at 6:49 pm

    Jen get a life. Time is swiftly passing, you are edgeing ever closer to 40, and you are becoming even more passe.

    Not even Norman wants to see your almost naked too tight bikini clad pixs, you have made him so ashamed of his Mom. He does not want you to sleep in his bed anymore as you have told the world you often do.

  • tabitha

    San Antonio took in a lot of Katrina victims as well. I think quite a few still live here as well. I see lot more people wearing Saints merchandise than before.I love living in the San Antonio-Austin area.
