BRANGELINA, the Hollywood couple of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, have donated $2 million (around £1.2 million) to a Namibian sanctuary after spending Christmas there, reports the Press Association. Staff said that during the vacation, Pitt and Jolie's children helped to feed and care for the orphaned baby baboons and foxes.
The substantial donation to the 'Naankuse Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary' was made through the 'Jolie-Pitt Foundation' in the name of their daughter Shiloh, who was born in Namibia. In a statement, the 35-year-old actress said that the owners of the sanctuary were old friends of hers and added, "We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth. We continue to be impressed by their hard work and dedication to the people and conservation of the land and wildlife of Namibia". The couple founded their charitable organisation back in 2006 and made initial $1 million donations to 'Global Action for Children', and 'Doctors Without Borders'.
During their festive stay at the lodge, the Hollywood stars and their children were said to have witnessed a leopard being released back into the wild.
