Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have formed the Jolie/Pitt Foundation to aid humanitarian causes around the world. The newly formed charitable foundation is giving away $1 million to the Global Action for Children and $1 million to Doctors Without Borders, to help families affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty.
The U.S. director for Global Action for Children, Jennifer Delaney, said: “Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt not only care, but more important, are taking concrete action to address the fact that there will be 20 million children orphaned by AIDS by 2010, and millions more orphaned by tuberculosis, malaria and conflict or whose parents are sick and dying.”
The couple’s spokesman, Trevor Neilson, released a statement saying: “Angelina and Brad are committed to using their resources to help the world’s most vulnerable people. These two organizations are focusing on crises that receive far too little attention and Angelina and Brad are happy to do their part to help.”
And here’s a list of Brad and Angelina’s Banksy art purchases:
* $226,000: The “Picnic” painting depicts a white family of four merrily lunching under an umbrella on a red checked blanket while 15 starving Africans - including several children with distended bellies - look on.
* $75,000: A white bust with a bleeding bullet hole in the forehead - was a particular favorite of Jolie’s. “She went nuts for that one,” an onlooker told the mag. “She told [her baby daddy], ‘I must have that one.’”
* $75,000: Portrait of a man hit in the head with a custard pie.

Nurses and doctors at Hollywood's famed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center (who've endured more than their share of abusive behavior by snotty, bossy showbiz stars) are suddenly getting downright teary-eyed about the down-to-earth sweetness of Angelina Jolie to the staff.
Angelina Jolie accompanies cancer-stricken mom Marcheline Bertrand to her chemotherapy sessions and brings gift and is "truly an angel," an insider tells The National Enquirer.
"Angelina delights everyone she encounters," gushed an insider.
"She brings tons of baked goods and trinkets for the nurses, unfailingly makes chatty visits to other patients — then cheerfully signs autographs and poses for photos with anyone who asks while waiting for her mom. Said one awed source: "Angelina's one of the biggest stars this town's ever seen — but she never wants anyone to make a fuss over her!"
It's a shame that Angie's mother has cancer and she and Brad Pitt have to struggle with the uncertainty, but it's great to hear they can still be kind as they struggle.

Nicole Kidman has hit out at Angelina Jolie for using her charity work for publicity. The Oscar winning Aussie beauty, Nicole Kidman, is reported to have said that even though Angelina Jolie was doing no more than any nurse in a hospital, she was still getting more attention just because she was famous.
"It's not like Angelina is any better than a nurse working in a hospital but she's getting the publicity for her contribution," she quoted her, as telling Scotland's Daily Record newspaper.
The Australian actress is about to make her first trip to India as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations Development Fund for Women.
"I have a friend who is a doctor and every year he works in Africa for two months for no money. So everyone is on the same playing field, whether you offer your services as the doctor or as Angelina does."
Like Nicole, Angelina is also a United Nations goodwill ambassador. Jolie is known for her humanitarian charity work too. She has previously visited victims of the 2005 Pakistan earthquake disaster on behalf of the UN, and donated all the money she and Brad raised from the sale of the first pictures of baby Shiloh to children's charity UNICEF.
