Video! Angelina Jolie's Refugee PSA

Actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie has released a new PSA in recognition of the World Refugee Day, June 20th, helping bring awareness to those affected third-world areas.

"Every day, thousands of people run from war, persecution and terror," Jolie says in the United Nations High Commission for Refugees PSA. "Even one is too many. One family forced to flee is too many, one child growing up in a camp is too many, one refugee without hope is too many."


The actress, 36, has been a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador for several years, frequently traveling to impoverished countries to lend support.

On June 10, she and partner Brad Pitt, 47, donated $500,000 to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks in Pitt's home state of Missouri. Their contribution supports mid-term and long-term rebuilding efforts in the Joplin area, recently destroyed by a series of tornadoes.

Said Jolie, "Our hearts go out to the families in Joplin who have lost so much."

The two were recently in Malta, scouting locations for an adaptation of the zombie novel "World War Z."
