The star couple, known for their generosity, donated $100,000 to the American SOS Children’s Villages – an organization which focuses on the long-term care of orphaned and abandoned children.
“We have seen first-hand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together,” said Angelina in a statement. “No one ‘ages out’ of an SOS Village: vocational training, advanced education, living assistance and moral support are there forever.”
The organization’s CEO, Heather Paul, expressed her thanks to the Jolie-Pitt for their donation and longtime support: “We are deeply grateful that this year they have included in their generosity our villages in Illinois and Florida and our 300 children who call SOS ‘home.’”
Brad added: “In this holiday season, many of us take for granted that we are surrounded by loving family members. The poor outcomes for foster children indicate that we must do a much better job of supporting them.”
Recently it was revealed that the couple donated over $6 million to different charities in 2008.
