Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Donated $6.8 million to Charity

Megastar couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie is so generous that all their donations last year to charity amounted to a whopping $6.8 million via their Jolie-Pitt Foundation. In the research made by The Hollywood Reporter, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation gathered $13 million in 2008 and over half of that sum was given back to good causes. They based these findings on the 2008 tax returns copy they acquired for the charity both the couple had established.

There are various charity groups that benefited from these donations. One of them is the Global Health Council, a group which tasked itself to alleviate the spread of disease globally, received $2 million from the Brad and Angelina. Brad Pitt's own Make It Right Foundation and the Human Rights Watch were each granted $1 million from the celebrity pair. All other donations include The Armed Services YMCA of the US Army, who were given $500,000, schools in Brad Pitt's hometown in Springfield, Missouri, which received $50,000, and around $1 million were donated to several development projects in Cambodia, where their eight-year-old adopted son Maddox hailed from. That's quite a stellar act from the Hollywood couple and we hope Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie continue their charitable endeavors for the less fortunate.
