Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie gave away more than $6 million last year
Here's another feel-good item from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie: The power couple gave away $6.4 million to charity in 2008, according to Showbiz411.com. All this good news lately ... who do they think they are, Johnny Depp?
Tax returns show Brangie more than doubled what they gave away in 2007, putting about $13 million in their Jolie-Pitt Foundation, giving away about half of it. The biggest recipients were Global Health at $2 million; Human Rights Watch with $1 million; and Pitt's Make It Right Foundation receiving $1 million. The Armed Service YMCA of the U.S. Army got $500,000, while Springfield Public Schools in Brad's hometown got $50,000. And don't forget the country of Cambodia, Pax's native country: They got about a cool million for various projects.
The couple split the amount of 2008 foundation funds at about $6 million each. Even their lawyer, Robert Offer, ponied up $10,000, which is more than the pocket change we dig up for the Salvation Army. What will The Juice* do if there's nothing scandalous to write about? We may have to (gasp!) bring back Paris Hilton. No wonder Jon and Kate Gosselin are so popular with the liberal media.
