Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Give a Fortune to Charity
Hollywood super-couple Brad Pitt and
Angelina Jolie handed over almost $5 million ($18.3m) to charitable causes in
2009, it has just been revealed. Having set up the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in
order to give cash to deserving organisations, Brad and Angelina donated a big
chunk of their fortune two years ago, according to Showbiz411.com, which
obtained the foundation's tax filing.
The biggest handout was to Brad's
New Orleans-based Make It Right Foundation, created after Hurricane Katrina,
which received $2 million (Dhs7.2m). Among the other causes to benefit were the
United Nations' Pakistan Emergency Fund ($1 million/Dhs3.6m) and children's
charity Kind, Inc, which received $100,000 (Dhs367,000). With Ramadan and the spirit of giving on
our minds, that’s heart-warming news.
