Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Donate $150,000 for National Adoption Day

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation has announced that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have donated $150,000 to the charity SOS Children’s Villages in recognition of National Adoption Day, which celebrates adoptive families and highlights the needs of children without parental care.

“I am truly thankful that Angelina and Brad understand the power of family – the kind of stable family that SOS holds as an essential part of healthy child development,” said Dr. Heather Paul, CEO of SOS Children’s Villages USA. “Together, Angelina and Brad have been eye-witnesses to the great work of SOS Children’s Villages in Ethiopia, Jordan, a Darfur refugee camp in Chad, and Haiti. Angelina and Brad know that children’s need for a family is universal.”

The Jolie-Pitt Foundation donation will provide the supplemental long-term financial support needed for a family of four foster children in an SOS Children’s Village in the US. Amazing!

FYI: Brad and Angie have three adopted children from Cambodia, Vietnam and Ethiopia — Maddox, 9, Pax, 6, and Zahara, 5.
