Angelina Jolie & Brad Pitt Donate $2 Million to Wildlife Sanctuary

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt have generously donated $2 million to the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia.

The couple and their children spent Christmas at the sanctuary, which is located in the country that Shiloh was born in four years ago.

“We want [Shiloh] to grow up with an understanding of her country of birth,” Angelina said.

The sanctuary is home to mostly orphaned and injured animals that are not ready to be released back into the wild.

While staying at the sanctuary, the Jolie-Pitt kids were able to watch a wild dog be healed and a leopard get released back into the wild.

  • justabitch

    I hear Brad Pitt’s hair plugs cost over 100,000, so that is a generous donation indeed. God bless the Jolie Pitts.

  • bdj

    BP and AJ are good people making a difference through their foundation, MIR, and their other various charitable contributions that are not reported via the organization. Both BP and AJ walk the talk.

  • teri

    You idiotic rejects of jen aniston are just as pathetic as she is. Selfish and just so damn childish.

  • WHO IS SALT ?

    Great !
    .
    Now if only Dumb Water Girl could do the same and give 2 millions to her hens so that they can get extra education in order to think thoughts properly, it would be fine…

  • CLINIQUA

    This family rocks – those children are very lucky to have such incredible role models as parents. They will be every bit as giving and compassionate as Mom and Dad.
    .
    Now…on to some hilarity! Bringing over from the last thread:
    .
    .
    SANDLER cuts MANISTON out of his ‘JUST STAY AWAY FROM IT’ TRAILER?!!!
    .
    I wonder if Maniston has seen the trailer for ‘Just Stay Away From It,’ lol – if so, she HAS to be steaming!! Adam Sandler and Brooklyn Decker are the main focus, while Maniston is only shown looking like a total frump, and then looking like her Switch character, or her Sh*t Happens character, or her Booty Hunter character – basically, like Rachel Green or she’s looked for the last 20 years, peroxide dirty blonde, tanned to the color of beef jerky, and fug, uttering a word or two, in a very quick shot.
    .
    While Decker has a sexy slow-mo shot walking out of the surf and
    several others. Sandler is CLEARLY keeping Aniston at a minimum in this flick.
    .
    Smart move. lol
    .
    No surprise, Nicole Kidman desperate for her Oscar nod for Rabbit Hole, has told Sandler to keep her out of the sh*tty trailer altogether. I’m sure she’s regretting it big time.
    .

  • Dakota

    How can anyone not agree that this couple is the most generous in Hollywood. As a fan, I feel very lucky to be able to follow news about them and watch their movies!! Thank You, Angelina and Brad!!!

  • Lily

    How wonderful and generous. Screw people. Keep giving to animal causes.

  • Hermione

    Every f***ing time they give 50c away they have to shout it loud! There´s a lot of celebs that gives without telling or bragging. They´re just pr-junkies!
    Blaah!

  • Agatha

    Angie & Brad are good people

  • teri

    This is a great donation were Shiloh was born, I just wonder if this little girl had a say and if she’ll be part of the Wildlife Sanctuary?

  • joe

    fran @
    Do you ask the same lame question of Oprah, george Clooney and Ellen ? They also announce everything they donate.
    The intention is to bring attention to causes that we otherwise wouldn’t hear about.

  • believe

    The JPs have donated their time and money generously to ‘people’ causes, Lily. Get with it before you post stuff like that. This family is amazing.

  • orionsbelt

    @Damage Control.

    If that were the case then Anistun would be penniless

  • desesperate

    zzzz…zzzz…
    publicity,publicity….

  • justabitch

    God bless the Jolie-Pitts. It worth repeating. Also god bless hair plugs. We wouldn’t want the peeps at the wildlife santuary to mistake Brad as a bald eagle or anything, now would we?

  • busted

    @Hermione:

    Leo give 1 million to save some animal thing it was posted on this site. Wait let me go find it so I can read your comment regarding that donation..

    I mean you would never be screaming at one celeb and not another. Right

  • nobody can relate

    They could either turn it over to the goverment in taxes or give it away, write it off, and gain positive PR. Generous I guess.

  • From Paris with Love

    WoW !

  • danielle

    @Hermione:

    Their announcements are probably in hope that others will donate to the cause too. I did. I went to the sanctuary’s website and donated $50. It is much like the Elephant Orphanage in Nairobi Kenya. It provides jobs for people in an area where jobs are scare. The sanctuary also helps keep the balance of predator/prey by doing a treat and release. It provides a needed service in an area where there isn’t much hope. Although Namibia is one of the more prosperous African countries, the jobs are scarce and poverty is rampant. How people like you can criticize is beyond me. They gave a lot to sustain an organization that provides jobs, care for abandoned/shot/hurt animals, and helps keep Namibia green and a place that tourists will come to.
    If there is any shame in this–it is people like you who are so petty and mean that they can’t rejoice in something so good.

  • desesperate

    cliniqua ,que estupida eres :
    esto es una pagina del pig ,no???es para habllar de el ,digo
    de eso que has escrito ahi te dire que si es cierto algo del vomito que has soltado seria porque cuando cierta SEÑORA asoma por la pantalla les roba el plano al resto..y o me extrañaria que el sex-appeal de esta SEÑORA empequeñezca el de otras,que por otro lado se llevan muy bien…
    y te sigo recordando que aqui se habla de los brangelinos…
    te recuerdo el flop de el turista

    @CLINIQUA:

    I see you are still obsessed with Jennifer as ever. Jen and Brad have over for six years this weeks. . MOVE ON, ALREADY.

  • justabitch

    @desesperate:

    Yeah what she said.

  • OMG

    @teri:

    How do you know they are Jennifer Aniston fans? There are plenty of people on the Internet who can’t stand either Jennifer or Angelina. And the fact that some Angelina and Brad fans make every post about Brad and Angelina a Jennifer hate fest reflect badly on those trolls. Look at CLIN’s post. She couldn’t stop at commending the family. She had to get in her obsessive hatred for Jennifer.

    Like I said before. It’s been six years. People need to move the hell on already. It’s ridiculous.

  • justabitch

    I hear Angie is going to adopt one of the bonobos. God bless the Jolie-Pitts.

  • OMG

    cliniqua wellcome to team SEÑORA ,i can´t to mention this name here because this woman don´t deserve that put her name in this rotten place …

  • WHO IS SALT ?

    # Hermione
    .
    Could you please tell your idole jen to stop telling the world that she will give 1 million to Haiti and help ‘those people’ ‘s economy in Mexico while sleeping at joe Francis mansion ?.
    .
    Oh and, tell her that in Haiti, we are still waiting for HER well publiczed through her own mouth 1 million dollar donation more than a year after the earthquake and her huminatarian public claim to do so.

  • Jones

    For those complaining that Brad and Angie announced their donation – THIS IS STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE FOR LARGE FINANCIAL GIFTS as it helps to build awareness of the need and inspires others into action. These size gifts are RARELY made in private. As someone who worked for a Foundation for 7 years, this is the way it is done people. Chill the fvck out.

  • maria from texas

    cliniqua you are so so so so estupid
    i prefer that you talk about the flop of year,please ,the tourist.

    Saw The Tourist last week. Reminded me of those great old movies with Cary Grant. Angelina was breathlessly beautiful.
