Brad & Angelina start charitable group.
Brad Pitt and his baby-mama Angelina Jolie both know how to make it good with their celebrity status. Instead of merely focusing on their career, both actors prefer to involve themselves more in social matters. And after the many good deed they've done, Brangelina is now having a greater project, which is creating a new charitable foundation.
Trevor Neilson, a spokesman for the couple told People that Pitt and Jolie are focusing their newly formed charitable foundation to aid humanitarian causes across the globe, saying "Angelina and Brad are committed to using their resources to help the world's most vulnerable people". The foundation will, furthermore, give away $2 million, $1 million to the Global Action for Children and $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, to help families affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty.
"These two organizations are focusing on crises that receive far too little attention and Angelina and Brad are happy to do their part to help", Trevor added. On the donation, Jennifer Delaney, the U.S. director for Global Action for Children, expressed gratitude, saying to the Associated Press, "Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt not only care, but more important, are taking concrete action to address the fact that there will be 20 million children orphaned by AIDS by 2010, and millions more orphaned by tuberculosis, malaria and conflict or whose parents are sick and dying."
