Brad and Angelina are $7 million givers

Saturday, Nov 28, 2009

Big-name stars? Definitely.

But big givers? Of that, there is even less doubt.

Angelina Jolie, 34, and Brad Pitt, 45, gave a whopping $6.8 million to charities in 2008, the Hollywood Reporter says.

That was the amount given to various groups through the philanthropically minded couple’s Jolie-Pitt Foundation, which donated about half of the $13 million it raised last year to nonprofits like Global Health, Human Rights Watch, the Armed Services YMCA, and Pitt’s own Make It Right Foundation, dedicated to rebuilding New Orleans.

Another $1 million went to various causes in Cambodia, home country for their son Maddox.
