Looks like humanitarian skills -- plus dimples, baby blues and a dazzling smile! -- run in the Pitt family.

Doug Pitt, Brad's handsome lookalike little brother, stepped into the spotlight at a Monday gala dinner at NYC's Essex House -- where he was named Goodwill Ambassador of the United Republic of Tanzania.

On hand for the big night were Doug's wife Lisa, singer Lauryn Hill, and Tanzania's President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete. Sadly absent: his big brother Brad, 46, whose planned flight to NYC from Italy was cancelled due to volcanic ash from an Icelandic volcano. (Pitt's love Angelina Jolie is a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador.)

Born in 1966, Doug is a photojournalist and director of Africa 6000 International, which provides fresh drinking water on the African continent.

"I think some things choose you, and Africa and Tanzania have chosen me," the younger Pitt said at the event.
