@QQQQ: Good morning 4Q, and all JP fans. Angle is still on the job garnering positive press for those displaced men, women and children. I’m guessing tomorrow will be her last day.
I read your post saying Angie is no longer a frontrunner for Gertrude Bell. I’m guessing she is going to rest and fill her time with another project. :-)
I’m praying for everyone in danger. Hope cooler heads come together and bring some peace in the region.

Angelina is looking really radiant.

thanks 4Q.am proud of our girl,anjie.bless her and her safety.

or maybe anjie and brad in a movie.double the wow!

Jolie looks beautiful and healthy! The dress is gorgeous and in the heat helped her stayed cool, wise choice. Your charity work keeps awareness alive for the refugees!

Good that someone in the public eye is taking so much interest in politics and raising awareness! More should follow in her foot steps. The syrian situation needs to be addressed promptly!

Thumb up Thumb down +23

It would be great if she is pregnant, sure would be a beautiful baby like its three siblings.
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

If I may correct, the baby would be a beautiful baby like his/her SIX siblings. My niece comes to us through adoption, (open adoption-a wonderful thing) and we are awaiting the arrival of her sister in November, the same way. Brad and Angie’s kids are brothers and sisters, stop leaving the older 3 out please! They ALL are beautiful!

I don’t know if the guy who tweeted actually spoke to her about the movie. In one of the articles it said she didn’t speak to the press. I guess we’ll see.

I wish you all would get out of AJ’s womb.

The firm helped advocacy group Kids in Need of Defense streamline operations.

Every day, dozens of unaccompanied children enter the labyrinth that is the U.S. immigration system. Some come with family members (or friends) who are not their parents or legal guardians; some are brought by gangs, smugglers, or human traffickers; some cross the border alone. Whatever the reason, once children are in the system, they are truly abandoned — there is no right to counsel in immigration proceedings.

Enter Kids in Need of Defense. In 2008, Microsoft Corp. and actress/humanitarian Angelina Jolie founded KIND to help unaccompanied children navigate the U.S. immigration system. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., it now has seven field offices and one affiliate across the country. In just a few short years, it has served more than 4,000 children.

In each field office, KIND staff screens unaccompanied immigrant children for eligibility for services; trains volunteer lawyers; and places the children’s cases with volunteer attorneys. KIND also mentors the participating lawyers through all phases of the cases. In its first year, KIND worked with about 50 law firms; today, 125 major law firms and 10 corporate legal departments participate.

But in 2010, KIND did not have standard practices in place and was not operating consistently or efficiently. That August, Seyfarth Shaw, honored KIND at a gala celebrating the 15th anniversary of its Houston office. Seyfarth has 800 attorneys located in 10 U.S. offices. Leaders from Seyfarth and KIND met to discuss ways that Seyfarth could support the group, and shortly thereafter, the firm took on the challenge of helping KIND streamline its operations. It committed to a yearlong project where the firm would use its “SeyfarthLean” methodology and technology to achieve this goal.

@getalife:

Why don’t you go there and get the ball started. YOU put you actions where you mouth is. but that would mean you would have to get you judgmentalass off the computer and actually GET A LIFE and do something yourself.
How sad that there are people like you that do nothing but crap on someone that is doing something. It’s easy to do that on a computer. Now run along and get that airline ticket. Let us know about the situation from the ground. When you get back then talk about what Angie (sould) do.. oops.. see how easy it is.

Thanks for all the information and videos of Angelina Jolie’s UNHCR trips. Angelina Jolie is an inspiring woman. Hens can whine and smear but they know that Mama Angie walks the talk.

@QQQQ:

I made an observation based on what I’m seeing. She looks beautifully radiant but I don’t think she’s pregnant and if she is or not, Angelina is much more than a baby-making machine.

Waouw, so smart.
The proof that you can be smart, you don’t need to be naked, and look very glamourous at the same time.
