Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's organization, The Jolie-Pitt Foundation, donated $150,000 to SOS Children's Villages in the U.S. in recognition of National Adoption Day.
Each November 20, the day celebrates adoptive families and highlights the needs of the over 100,000 children still waiting for adoptive families in the United States, while cultivating and stabilizing the foster care program. Through this donation, The Jolie-Pitt Foundation will provide long-reaching support crucial to transforming a child who has suffered years of abuse.
Founded over 60 years ago, SOS Children's Villages has provided loving, stable homes to children around the world whose biological families cannot properly care for them, with over 500 Villages in 130 countries. They operate under core principles, including keeping siblings together, reuniting children with their biological families whenever possible and maintaining those foster care relationships beyond high school age.
