Jolie, Pitt Donate $100,000 to Orphan Children
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are truly giving back this holiday season.
The couple donated $100,000 to support the American SOS Children's Villages for Christmas. The organization is dedicated to the long-term care of orphaned and abandoned children.
The megastars adopted three of their six children. Maddox, 8, Zahara, 4, and Pax, 6, all spent time in orphanages overseas.
In a statement, Jolie said, "We have seen first-hand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together. No one 'ages out' of an SOS Village: vocational training, advanced education, living assistance and moral support are there forever."
Pitt added, "In this holiday season, many of us take for granted that we are surrounded by loving family members. The poor outcomes for foster children indicate that we must do a much better job of supporting them."
