Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie Donate $100,000 to Children's Charity
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's Jolie-Pitt Foundation donated $100,000 to Global Action for Children, it was reported Thursday.
"With the holiday season upon us, we hope the generous gift from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation inspires others to give and focus on assisting orphans and highly vulnerable children around the world," the charity's executive director, Jennifer Delaney, said in a statement. "Each and every donation can truly make a difference in the life of a child."
In 2006, the couple - who are parents to three adopted children - donated $1 million to the GAC. According to tax filings, they donated more than $8 million to various charities through their foundation that year.
"GAC is honored to receive a second grant from the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, and we greatly appreciate the Jolie-Pitt Family's continued commitment to and support of our work," Delaney added.
Pitt was recently in New Orleans on behalf of his Make It Right Foundation, which raises money to build homes for families displaced by Hurricane Katrina.
