Pitt Jolie and a Cool Mil
Missourian, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie made a $1 million gift through their foundation (apparently called the Jolie-Pitt Foundation) to help kids in war-torn Iraq. The money will be distributed by the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict, an initiative that was launched at the 2007 Clinton Global Initiative and co-chaired by Jolie.
The money will be divided between the Armed Services YMCA Operation
Hero Program, which provides military children with counseling and
educational support; Women for Women International, which will provide
books, school supplies and other basic necessities to Iraqi women and
children; the International Rescue Committee, which will repair three
schools and offer classes for more than 2,500 students; and NineMillion.org, which will give and learning materials to more than 2,000 displaced Iraqi kids.
