Brad & Angelina Donate $1 Million to Haiti Quake Relief Efforts

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie‘s foundation is contributing $1 million to emergency medical operations responding to the devastation caused by the 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday (January 12).

“It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades,” says Angelina.

Brad adds, “We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care.”

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation is donating the money to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiéres (MSF).

Angelina and the kids were recently spotted shopping at an Apple Store in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

    Just read that coca cola, ups , and Angelina all Donated a million each to help Haiti. Watching CNN and Anderson Cooper sounds so shaken by what he’s witnessing
    ==========
    Brange donates as much as coca cola does. JUST WOW, Brange rocks. I love them.

  • @love em

    Brad and Angie have a history of supporting Doctor’s Without Borders. As well as causes brought to their attention by Wycleff Jean.

    The reason they are publicizing this is to get people like you off their butts and donating to help add to the rescue efforts. ‘

    It is truly too bad your hatred of them interferes with common decency towards upwards of 300,000 dead as well as orphaned children, a population now with little medical relief and most of the city’s population sleeping in parks, on the street etc.

    Great Jared – now if we can only have this decent positive thread last more than 5 minutes, I’ll be happy. Thanks!

  • ohwell

    Pitt and Jolie donate $1 million, let’s see how much Maniston will donate. My guess is zero.

  • bdj

    Oprah Winfrey devoted a show. NO whiny or her PR team.

  • teri

    F..k all you trashy haters, if it’s such a damn tax write off tell manny to donate a couple million or stfu you haters. Oh now what she’s to damn stingy righ? To me me me to give a care about anyone out of her little circle right? I mean you said it’s a tax write off so it shouldn’t be any sweat off her a.., I know it’s just too much to ask from this cold hearted cvnt to expect her to start caring and putting herself first. As of today Angelina and Brad have given 32 million so stfu or step up.

  • pokeman

    bdj @ 01/13/2010 at 9:09 pm

  • anon

  • teri

    A family of EIGHT DONATING 32 MILLION in TEN YEARS, OMG!!!!!!! Bless this lovely and caring family for caring for the less fortunate.

  • releka

    If there is a hell, those who hate Angelina have a special place there. This madness is beyond crazy and must stop. What purpose does the hate serve?

  • big deal to them

    Brad spends a mil on motorcycles,weed,and women in 1 year.

  • anon

    @TX:

    This is not positive PR. they are doing what they want to do, fk everyone else. some will donate and some will not.

  • bdj

  • kayla
  • plez

    Everyone should give. Thanks to Brad and Angelina and everyone else who helps these people of Haiti.

  • teri

    How dare you morons still pity x in such a time of need for these people in Haiti. A woman who’s sitting on 100 million for what? Is this supposed to buried with her? What did man do after the 9-11? Oh yes just answering phones, what a worthless selfish and greedy hag like her followers. Don’t go spewing jealous bs about the JP they’ve stepped up and talked the talk and walked the walk.

  • wonder

    Why doesn’t Huvane and Aniston donate a million dollars?
    Aniston has so much money.Do your own hair aniston and donate.

  • eliott

    A lovely couple. Compassionate, talented, intelligent AND gorgeous. They know how blessed they are to have such a beautiful, healthy family AND their successful careers. They are constantly ‘giving back.’
    .
    “Those to whom much has been given, much is expected” The JP’s generosity exceeds expectations.

  • Aussie Girl

    Good on them for helping & hopefully getting others to help as well. It sounds like there is massive devastation & a huge amount of lives lost. It’s sad that in such a crisis involving Mother Nature that haters still choose to attack people who are helping out.

  • the real Lou

    # 38 big deal to them @ 01/13/2010 at 9:14 pm ….I take it you haven’t been watching CNN?In the last hour I have seen DEAD BODIES lying in the street.Women,children and even babies dead.So yes…this money is a BIG DEAL.You are one ignorant,hateful,disgusting person!

  • luvangie4ever

    Love!

  • pokeman

    again, the haters will attack the JP because they are JP. nothing will stop them from saying nasty things about this family. these haters are pathetic. people die and w/o food, water, shelter and yet they are here attacking the JP instead of trying to help. they would rather hate than help. does that make sense. what’s wrong with them. i guess it makes them to hate. that’s the only way they will survive. its sad.

  • Excuse me?

    Where are the donations from the other stars, like those who have $110 MILLION socked away and NO CHILDREN of their own to provide for? The JPs have six children, yet still dig deeply to give. What about those who are more worred about what they will wear to the GGs and how much to pay their HAIRDRESSERS, than they are about thousands of dead black children?

    Where is CHEAP MANISTON’s donation of millions of bottles of Smartwater? Oh, that’s right, her contract with Coca Cola will be up in March, so she would have to pay for the water HERSELF.

    An entire nation of black and brown people can die and Maniston will remain more concerned about walking her creaky old a** across the stage this weekend. The CHEAP, NASTY, MANIPULATIVE, WH@RE! of Hollywood.
