by at . Comments

Once again, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated a large chunk of change to a very good cause.

In this case, it's $500,000 to the Community Foundation of the Ozarks to assist the residents of Joplin, Missouri, whose town was destroyed by a tornado last month.

“With the devastating loss of thirty percent of the city, the Joplin community faces great challenges ahead. Having spent much of my childhood there, I know these people to be hardworking, humble and especially resilient,” said Pitt.

Added Jolie: “Our hearts go out to the families in Joplin who have lost so much.”

This isn't the first time this famous pairing has stepped up in the name of disaster relief. They gave $1 million to support rebuilding efforts in Haiti last year.

annie from alabama, Brad is from the area, I don't think they meant as a slight to you or your state.


That's wonderful! And it's not like the tornadoes in Alabama were more destructive and killed more people or anything. Not at all. But apparently victims from Alabama are illiterate and backwards so we don't get any money from the golden couple. Sucks for us.


True charity does not need to be reported. The real news don't report them because they are out reporting real charitable people not ones who have to take out billboards everytime they give to charity.


Please give an indication why the rag-mag tabloids Never put on the cover of their trash tales about the many donations of Brad and Angelina toward relief efforts during emergencies and disasters.
@ Hilton Hater:
Thanks for reporting stories about this couple's generous charitable donations as well as the other *stories that are reported about them.
Being the mother of 6 children, and in a longtime relationship with the love of her life, Angelina remains awesome and a credit to her position as *a goodwill ambassador,Not only to our country, but to other countries as well!!
