We will say it again. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are awesome.

Over the holidays, the globe-trotting, philanthropic pair visited an animal sanctuary in Namibia, where their first biological child was born.

When they departed, they left an astounding $2 million behind.

GIVING BACK: It's what Brangelina is becoming best known for.

The couple made that huge donation to the Naankuse Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia, the country in which daughter Shiloh, now 4, was born.

Of the donation in Shiloh's name, Angelina said, "We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth."

The pair often donates to humanitarian causes, including Doctors Without Borders and Global Action for Children, via the Jolie/Pitt foundation.

The couple and their children spent the holidays at the Namibian sanctuary caring for and feeding orphaned animals. It was a major success.

Said Jolie: "We continue to be impressed by the hard work and dedication of the people and conservation of the land and wildlife of Namibia."

People question their motives, but even if they were entirely self-serving, do you think the people and wildlife of Namibia are worse off? No.

Here's a clip from 2009 of Angelina reflecting on her ties to the nation:
