Brangelina Donates $1 Million to Earthquake Relief

by at . Comments

If only all celebrities were like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

They're gorgeous, they're talented, they provide us with endless, hilarious tabloid fodder - and they're as charitable as it gets.

The most recent example of their giving nature: the couple has contributed $1 million to emergency medical operations in Haiti, as that nation deals with thousands of deaths and incomprehensible damage in the wake of a 7.0-magnitude earthquake.

"It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades," said Jolie, while her partner added:

"We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care."

Specifically, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation is donating the funds to Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontiéres, whose three hospitals in Port-au-Prince were severely damaged.

We hope other stars are paying close attention.
