Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Donated $1 Million to Iraqi Children
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie were known for their generousity and philantropic act. And this time they did it again.
The Education Partnership for Children of Conflict announced on Wednesday (6/25), that the couple has donated $1 million to help kids affected by the war in Iraq. Through Jolie-Pitt Foundation, the organization will distribute the donation to four organizations working on behalf of children who have lost parents, homes and schools in Iraq. Children in the U.S. who have lost parents in the conflict will also benefit.
In a written statement from Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, where Jolie serves as co-chairs, the actress wrote, “These educational support programs for children of conflict are the best way to help them heal”. And added by Pitt, “We hope to encourage others to give to these great organizations”.
The money will be divided between the Armed Services YMCA Operation Hero Program, which provides military children with counseling and educational support; Women for Women International, which will provide books, school supplies and other basic necessities to Iraqi women and children; the International Rescue Committee, which will repair three schools and offer classes for more than 2,500 students; and NineMillion.org, which will give school uniforms and learning materials to more than 2,000 displaced Iraqi kids.
This ‘perfect’ couple made great fortune from their career, and they don’t forget to share it for those in needs. What a great example!
