Angelina Jolie has already lived a life that few could rival. She is the third actress in history to earn 20 million US dollars for a single film. But winning accolades or positive publicity does not fuel her true mission in life. She is driven by a genuine commitment to help those less fortunate.

The devastation had a profound effect on Jolie. Along with partner Brad Pitt, who had accompanied her to Pakistan, the couple donated 40 of the needed beds, valued at over 100 thousand US dollars. Since that trip, Angelina and Brad have used their global profiles to generate support for causes that genuinely don't appear in the mainstream media. They set up the Jolie-Pitt foundation, and in 2009 it donated one million US dollars to help displaced families in Pakistan, and another one million US dollars to the Global Action for Children Organization. Together they have visited countries such as Sudan, Chad, Haiti, and Darfur. They have also cleverly used the public?s increasing interest in their lives to help the causes they feel most strongly about – selling the birth phmoreless
