Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt have proved their humanitarian credentials by donating over $8 million (GBP4 million) to charity. The couple is known for their work with good causes - Jolie is a United Nations goodwill ambassador while Pitt has been devoting much of his time to helping victims of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated New Orleans, Louisiana, in 2005. The pair also set up their own charitable organisation - the Jolie Pitt Foundation - in 2006, with Jolie donating $4.1 million (GBP2.5 million) and Pitt giving $4.4 million (GBP2.2 million) to the fund. The foundation poured out $2.4 million (GBP1.2 million) in 2006 alone with money going to charities including Doctors Without Borders and the Global AIDS Alliance. In addition, Jolie and Pitt donated $137,000 (GBP68,500) to the Namibia Red Cross as an apology for the media circus that descended on the country when Jolie gave birth to their daughter Shiloh there in 2006.
