Angelina Jolie is Still Awesome

by at . Comments

Angelina Jolie cannot help herself. This is just what she does.

Being a world-famous actress and raising a half dozen kids isn't enough. She spends remarkable amounts of time and money trying to make the world a better place.

Today's example of her good deeds? The UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador started up a school for refugee returnees, mostly from Pakistan, in Tangi, Afghanistan.

Having visited there in 2008, Angelina Holie learned from the displaced people about their concerns about a lack of educational facilities in the war-torn area.

So, according to the UNHCR website, the star donated over $75,000 to get an all-girls school up and running. The building will be inaugurated on Thursday.

As she exhibited recently in Haiti, Angelina Jolie is awesome.

Angelina Jolie is a true ambassador of our nation, and humanity.

Classes start Monday at the school, which boasts eight classrooms, four administrative buildings, a well and eight latrines, and can accommodate up to 800 students.

The UNHCR is working with UNICEF to recruit teachers and books. Plans are also under way to offer secondary education, as only two Tangi girls are currently enrolled.

We're guessing that if asked, or even if not, we know someone who might volunteer her resources, financial or otherwise. Talk about using your celebrity admirably.
