Angelina Jolie Raises World Refugee Day Awareness

by at .

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.
