Pitt, Jolie Gave More Than $6.8 Million to Charity Last Year
In 2008, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie gave more than $6.8 million to charities, according to the Hollywood Reporter, which has obtained a 2008 tax return for their Jolie-Pitt Foundation.
That's more than double what they gave in 2007.
According to the Reporter, their Jolie-Pitt foundation earned just over $13 million -- half of which they handed over to various charities.
The biggest recipients of their list: Global Health ($2 million), Human Rights Watch ($1 million), Brad's Make it Right Foundation ($1 million), which has been building eco-friendly homes for Hurricane Katrina victims in New Orleans.
They also gave $500,000 to the Armed Services YMCA of the U.S. Army; $50,000 to the Springfield, Missouri Public Schools (Pitt's hometown); and roughly a million dollars to projects in Cambodia, the country from which they adopted their first child, Maddox, now 8.
