Angelina Jolie Raises World Refugee Day Awareness

by at . Comments

Angelina Jolie will almost certainly not direct Fifty Shades of Grey, but she will star in a new PSA for a project much more important to her.

The 37-year-old actress always makes time for those near and dear to her heart. In this case, that means the refugees of the planet Earth.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees special envoy is helping raise awareness for World Refugee Day, coming up June 20.

In a new PSA, Jolie points out that there are over 43 million refugees around the world. That's 43 million human beings displaced from their homeland.

Of those in need, UNHCR provides life-saving assistance to nearly 34 million.

The organization's goal is to share the poignant stories of refugees so that people across America will extend their generosity, concern and support.

Jolie has served as a UN Goodwill Ambassador for more than a decade, and has visited refugees around the world. For that, our hat is off to her.

I am impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that's both educative and fascinating, and with no doubt, you've hit the nail around the head. The problem is something that not sufficient people are speaking intelligently about. I am extremely happy that I stumbled across this throughout my search for some thing regarding this. web hosting http://www.dancome.co

She does manage to keep the status of the displaced relevant, and that I find admirable. Most Americans don't realize the how mind-boggling the effects of poverty, war, and famine truly are (think Hurricane Katrina to the millionth power). I do wish she would lend her voice to the fight against hunger and poverty here in The States.....help us in taking care of home too Angie.
