Angelina Jolie: World Refugee Day Reminder!

Angelina Jolie: World Refugee Day Reminder!

UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie is imploring the public to not forget refugees by observing World Refugee Day 2010 this Sunday (June 20).

“Having a home, a place we belong, a place we feel safe, is something most of us take for granted,” she says in a new PSA, which you can watch below. “Please remember the millions of people around the world forced from their homes. Because the only hope of return is to not be forgotten.”

Watch below! Angie created the same type of video for last year’s World Refugee Day.

It is important to always remember and feel and act with compassion to refugees the whole year. Don’t forget that we all not as individuals but members of families countries have been refugees in our life. It is not hard for a country to became in war and people in need of refugee. Treat others as you’d like them to treat you!

Wouldn’t it have been hilarious if she had said, “PS, SALT comes out in a few weeks.”

Wow. Something important being posted at Just Jared. Im in shock.

So important to never forget about the Refugees. Amazing people. Real survivors.

oh, i love her! she is beautiful both inside and out, and has a heart of gold. she makes the world such a better place for everyone who’s in need. a lot of people say that they want to help other people, but do they ever do it? well, yea, some people, but most of them are just lying. angie actually does it, and i’m pretty sure everyone appreciate that! i love her for everything she does! <3 <3 <3

Lets not forget about the Uzbek people who are now fleeing violence.

Nice to see Jared sharing an important message. And not some dumb reality show loser

Angelina is a special person. Any cause that has her attention and time is lucky.

Thanks Jared,
That’s why Angie is an inspiration to so many of us. I admire her work and dedication on behalf of the refugees.

On days like this, I am reminded of what it means to live in a country and enjoy the freedom that I so often take for granted. The idea of a refugee as a person who, for various possible reasons, can no longer live safely in a particular country is foreign to most of us. Thank you Angie for given a voice to the millions of refugees that can’t go home and the ones that are hoping to return home.

So proud to be your fan.

She’s “on about” showing compassion, caring and empathy for others who desperately need our help, something you will NEVER grasp or understand.

Haters to the left!

She done more than you ever will in your entire life.

She has such gorgeous eyes, she’s a really stunning woman. And equally as beautiful on the inside.

Oh, if only every celeb did a little bit of this instead of bragging about their perfect bodies on mag covers, wouldn’t the world be a better place? Me thinks so! :-)

Thank you Angie for making our world a better place.

You guys have no sense of humor!!!

Most of us have already viewed Angelina’s Refugee’s Day message already because we were looking for it and re-watched Angelina and Dr. Jeffery Sachs, thanks jjb. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uUHf_kOUM74&feature=player_embedded

Thanks JJ for posting this, thanks Angelina for bring awareness and help around the world. Also to the other celebs who dare to get involved with caring for others and the environment. Making amends, refocusing and giving back….too bad Wall Street fat cat bankers don’t take their (unearned) bonuses and do the same. Don’t forget the U.S. especially the Gulf Coast region.

That’s great but the audio on that is really bad. Anyone else find that or is it my speaker?
