Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s foundation has donated $1 million to children affected by the war in Iraq. The Jolie-Pitt Foundation has dedicated $500,000 for school supplies and education programs for refugee children in Iraq and $500,000 for American children who either lost a parent deployed in Iraq or have a parent serving in the war-torn country.
Angelina traveled to Iraq in February as a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Upon her return she said,
“My visit [to Iraq] left me even more deeply convinced that we not only have a moral obligation to help displaced Iraqi families, but also a serious, long-term, national security interest in ending this crisis.”
In 2006, Jolie, 33, and Pitt, 44, donated over $8 million for their foundation. During that year, the foundation gave $1 million gifts to Doctors Without Borders (International Division) and the Global AIDS Alliance.
