Doug Pitt: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro!

Doug Pitt is making his way up Mount Kilimanjaro!

    If you both had bothered to click on the link to World Serve International–you would see each climber is raising $25,000 or more towards providing clean water in various villages in Africa. Each climber is matched with a specific village so that they can see where their efforts and the money they raise goes.

    Directly from the website since you can’t be bothered to click:

    What’s at stake is solving part of the global water crisis. Nearly 1 billion people (1,000 million people, to put that in perspective) lack access to clean, safe water. Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a water-related disease. We can do our part in East Africa – raising $1 million to provide as many as 50 communities with clean water.

    In January 2011, business, community and church leaders from across the world will join together to scale Mt. Kilimanjaro. At 19,330 ft. (5,891 meters), each step to the top will mark a step toward ending the water crisis for up to 50 different communities in East Africa. The event aims to raise $1 million for clean water projects. We will match each climber with a specific village so they and their supporters know which community stands to benefit from their journey

    The Pitts are Good People!!! To Bad Angie isn’t;)

  • Sacha

    Something nice to read about. Go ahead Doug!

  • Rachel

    @katie:

    Well Brad thinks Angie is great as do the rest of the Pitts–and that is all that counts isn’t it.

  • Kirsten

    Great job Doug! Julie, Brad’s sister also has adopted two Ethiopian sons and works with several charities. Brad and Angie are probably proud. The Pitts and Angie are beautiful on the inside and outside.

  • Eww

    @my naym iz Doug Pitt: lol the fans are gonna get you for that one. I thought it was funny. He looks just like brad if brad didn’t have plastic surgery.

  • true

    @katie: @katie: jealous hater.

  • Barbara

    FLAMENGO?! wtf?! the guy next him is carioca like me. awesome;
    Brazilians are everywhere;

  • WBPfan

    Aside from the money raised, these Kili climbers are raising tons of awareness on the need for clean water in the world. Its the ripple effect.

  • walking the talk

    Unlike his brother, Doug gets his hands dirty and actually does something besides throw money at a problem. Brad could learn a thing or two.

  • groundcontrol

    Brad’s sister, Julie, is also involved in getting clean water to Ethiopian villages by helping get wells dug.
    .
    Kudos to them all.

  • Tam

    What an awesome family. Such togetherness. Good luck and stay safe. It’s a good thing when rich people don’t just sit on their buttocks and tan and waste away. Good that they make a difference.

    @Maniston Stupid:

    Is it really necessary to bring Jen into this? It’s been six years. Move on already.

  • saywhat?

    @walking the talk:

    You don’t walk in either Brad or Doug’s shoes, how would you know what either have done—do you live with them?

    Congrats and thanks to all the climbers on the KiliClimbforWater. MakeItRight for Africa. MakeItRight for Nola. http://www.kiliclimb.org/follow-the-climb/climb-day-4/

  • Marieme

    Man, what a neat family! Wish I could know more about Madre and Padre Pitt. They must be fantastic role models. I mean more fantastic than I imagined!

    What’s obvious is they’re all humanitarians at heart. It shows how perfectly Angelina must fit in. Suck it Fugs.

  • MooCow

    Whatever the PITT family did for charity they didn’t do in Africa and Haiti (or publicly) until Angelina Jolie came into their lives.

  • dakila

    his mouth is like brad’s. way to go,doug!

  • nasra

    I am very proud of this blessed family. It is obvious how Angie fitted into this family cause she has been all the way a true humanitarian. Imagine seeing Angie in refugee camps in Tanzania in year 2001…..long time before she met Brad. All the best to the most awesome Kili Climber – Doug and to all who work hard to make this World a better place.
    I also pray for George Clooney who is currently overseeing the Southern Sudan peace process.

  • Bia

    FLAMENGOOOOOOOO!!!

  • marie

    walking the talk….you mean aside from the dozens of hospitals, schools, wildlife preserves, Make it Right in Katrina, Not on our Watch with Clooney and the gang, times in Pakastan helping the flood victims, etc….you mean Brad could learn a thing or 2….and besides him and Angie being the inspiration for his brother doing this……wow, good point!!!
    i bet you must spend a lot of time helping and donating and getting your hands dirty!! do tell…what have you done so great?!
