Brangelina Breaks the Bank for Refugees

5/11/2007 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

They haven't adopted a child from there yet, but Brangelina donated a cool million bucks yesterday to assist refugees in the Darfur region of Sudan.

Brad and Angie's donation will go to a variety of relief organizations working to help people displaced by the ongoing war in the region. It seems the do-gooding duo decided to make the donation after a visit to area refugee camps last month. Moving Jolie one step closer to sainthood-on-earth, International Rescue Committee president George Rupp said, "This donation will make a real difference in the lives of thousands of vulnerable people."

dont you people know that a big ass donation is only a big ass tax right off...gezzuss....if angje and brad really cared they would not want it made public about all this money they give away....but it makes them news and known and thats all they want...angie you are already known...to be a husband stealing whore and brad shame on you...you came from a nice familly...
and as for TMZ why is it every time thier kids are mentioned YOU have to mention they are adopted...l dont know about other people but thats getting a lil old and sicking...l think the whole world already knows...
and of course why not donate to the people who help make them famous to begin with...the american poor...lord knows there is more then enough of them....

Just my opinion    

Yes, I agree this is good for them to do. I admit I don't have a dime to spare for charity, but if I did, I would be just as generous as these two people are with their money and time.

What are these two jet-setting beautiful people doing to stop the war in Iraq, where more have died? Never heard a peep from them on that criminal debacle.

At least one celebrity isnt spending millions on clothes a year and instead spending it on something good.

Many more "Hollywood" men & women could learn a thing or two from Brad &Angie!......maybe Paris could do something with all that $$$ she has instead of boozin it up all the time!

Why does sainthood always have to be a motive when talking about her? Websites are always building them up just to tear them down in the next post.

They both have movies coming out and if they do good they can make it back in a day
and besides it's a good tax write off. There were about 16 on the list that do more.
He heads a committee for America but since he isn't there the others are doing the
work. One of these days he will have to make up his mind where he wants to live.
Our state had a tornado that destoryed 95 per cent of a town and another had major
flooding. It is much more important to me to help those in my own backyard and
believe me, they do need help and no one is asking for publicity for doing it.

TMZ: Sainthood on earth? I don't think that's what she's trying to do. Perhaps other "celebs" that are tight with their wallets should step up and do something for someone other than themselves. The money from DUI/DWI tickets (and the booze) would go a long way toward helping others. That money is just wasted anyway.

MSM    

Nina, Yes there are poor kids in the U.S. But the terms "genocide" and "refugee" don't usually get used to describe the situation in the U.S. the way they do in Sudan. I'm not saying there aren't plenty of needy people in the U.S., but the situation in Sudan is undeniably urgent.

If you all would educate yourselves about the atrocities going on in the Darfur region you wouldn't be asking why don't they keep their money in the US. At least we don't have to worry about militants coming into our homes and taking anything they want, killing or hurting our loved ones, or burning our homes to the ground. Thankfully these two are trying to make a difference and help those that are unable to help themselves. Good for them. God bless you.
