Just a quick note to pass this along.
We've all heard of the devastating tornado that tore Joplin, MO apart this spring.
We've all heard of the requests to donate to the American Red Cross disaster relief fund.
We've all heard the heartbreaking tales of disaster, loss and recovery in that region.
But how many have actually done something about it?
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolee have.
Now don't quote me on the details, but I recently heard a media report (don't recall the source, sorry) that the Brad and Angelina foundation (their established charity foundation) has set aside a HUGE amount of money for recovery efforts. Actually donated it.
I think, but I'm not sure, that it was more than 10 MILLION dollars.
Why would they do this, you ask? According to the media report, Brad Pitt was raised in the SW Missouri region that Joplin is a part of.
Now, no matter what you think of Brad and Angelina, THAT is a classy move. It makes me feel good that he would lead the way to help the people in the region that he called home. Good move, Brad.
