The generosity of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt knows no bounds. The couple recently donated $1 million to Iraqi children through their namesake Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
The money will be distributed via the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict to four organizations that work with orphaned children who lost parents, homes, and schools due to the war in Iraq. Additionally, American children who've lost parents in the war will also benefit from the couple's donation.
In a statement, Jolie said, "These educational support programs for children of conflict are the best way to help them heal," while Pitt concurred, "We hope to encourage others to give to these great organizations." Props to the couple for providing to children domestically as well as internationally.
