Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie give away $ 500,000 to victims in Joplin

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are never the last to help the poor. Whether it’s for people located thousands of kilometers away or inn their own country, the two have never stepped back from being generous.

In 2010, the couple donated $ 100,000 to Pakistan and Angelina opened a school for girls in Afghanistan.

Now Angelina and Brad chose to donate $ 500,000 to the people of Joplin, who were victims of tornadoes.

Pitt was particularly touched because he grew up nearby in Springfield: “With the devastating loss of thirty percent of the city, the Joplin community faces great challenges ahead. Having spent much of my childhood there, I know these people to be hardworking, humble and especially resilient.”

“Our hearts go out to the families in Joplin who have lost so much,” Jolie added.
