StarsCare: Jolie-Pitt Foundation
With the recent news of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt getting engaged (That's as much as we'll talk about it because honestly, who cares? You have 94 children from 45 countries. Mazel tov. All we can remember is that Brad broke our girl Jennifer Aniston's heart and honestly, we'll never forgive you. But go, get married, adopt children, make a Mr. & Mrs. Smith 2, save the world. Blah, blah.), this week's StarsCare is all about the Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
As you (now) know, we aren't the biggest fan of this "power" couple, but we do appreciate the good that they do with their celebrity status. Angelina has won friggin' peace prizes blessed by Mother Teresa or some crap so obviously, she's a good person. Brad is the reacher in the relationship, obv, but their kids are cute so, again, we are celebrating the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
When Maddox was adopted from Cambodia, Angelina made sure that he would be raised knowing where he was born and the culture of the country he came from. "The Maddox Jolie-Pitt (MJP) Foundation is committed to environmental security, creating peace and stability in all communities by planning and implementing interventions that prevent negative environmental changes. Working with impoverished rural villagers and local governments to alleviate food insecurities and increase access to basic primary healthcare and education, we're implementing projects that build healthy and vibrant communities." Even though we may have our own 90's bitterness toward her, when it comes down to it Angelina Jolie really does rock. It's not every international adoptive mom that travels back to their child's country of origin and strives to make it a better place day in and day out.
