Angelina Jolie has inspired her make-up artist to help women in his native Afghanistan get a formal education.

MATIN MAULAWIZADA, who has also done make-up for Gwyneth Paltrow, has set up Afghan Hands, which pays women in the country to embroider one-of-a-kind scarves and shawls, and also pays them to learn to read and write with a teacher.

And while the fashion items have proved popular with the likes of Lindsay Lohan and Claire Danes, Maulawizada counts United Nations goodwill ambassador Jolie as his main inspiration for the project.

He says, "She told me to put side my fears and do what I need to do.

"My goal is that they get high school diplomas. I received a shipment of shawls and (the women) had signed their names on the back. They had finally learned to write their own names. They were the most beautiful signatures I'd ever seen."

There is nothing so great about that pig. She loves being the center of attention. If she really was as charitable as she says she is , she would make sure that all the media doesn't know what she does.At least once a week she makes sure that she does something to get her name in the news.As far as adopting those kids. We have all kinds of starving children right here in our country. She could have adopted a child right here {like rosie o'donnell did}, but then it wouldn't have made all the tabloids. She's disgusting. This article is another example of her trying to make like the "VIRGEN MARY".

What's with the hate? She's a celeb; she is going to be in the news. And so what if she is getting attention? At least it is because of some awesome stuff that she is doing. If it was solely attention that she was after, I am sure that there are many less generous ways of getting it. Also, this article was not written by Angelina in order to brag about herself. It was about a man that was inspired by her and gave credit where he believed it was due. Anyhow, reading your comment did not convince me of your opinion, but rather disgusted me with how your comment was full of nothing but bitterness and hostility. (By the way - Virg-i-n Mary)
