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.

Brad does whatever Angelina wants. So lovable. I love to see them so in love.

Great people and a great cause…it saddens me that most people prefer making their own babies when there are thousands, probably millions of lovable babies and kids who have no one to call mom or dad.

BRANGELINA FOREVER!

SHILOH IS SHINING

That’s it? Maybe they should take away the $17 mill they just spent on a house and give half of that to this charity.

Very cool.
Bravo to the Jolie-Pitts.
Wish they would get hitched.
All children should be treated with love, care and respect.
Child Trafficking is a huge problem in the US right now.
Awareness is important.

Heartwarming news. Love what they do, be it charity, professional or personal.

@Jordy#12
Or they could have just worn a t.shirt that they didn’t have to buy to try and get ordinary folk to put up the money and keep all their money to themselves. I guess that would be better.

Good for Angie and Brad, that’s why I love this couple so much, they are the exceptional Americans who represent us all over the world. i wish there were more kind souls in the world, evolved creatures of the human species.

Love them. Great people.

Alison, SOS announced the donation, not Brad and Angie. These two always put their money where their mouth is.

@Anilec: I wish that too, from US to Asia, Oceania and Europe.

Thay are do gooding couple they walk the talk to help in USA and worldwide.

it is all about publicity

Amazing couple, always thinking of others in pain and giving from their own pockets. Good things happen to those who give. God bless this family.

joanna: Why don’t you put your money and see if its phony?????
Shut-the F**K up when you don’t give cause you are more pathetic and stupid!

@Jordy:

And maybe you should not believe TABLOID LIES. They did not buy a house in Italy, they only lease the house in France. No proof by any verifiable source as to the Italy house, never. No sighting of them in the area in Italy by anyone other than an unidentified realtor, nothing in official Italian records. Just like the lie re a purchase of a house on a Greek island or a place in Berlin, just LIES.

2 good people doing the right thing re the SOS donation. They did not announce the gift, the SOS official did.

Such stupid nuts here as usual showing their ignorance.
