Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Donate $2 Million To Namibian Wildlife Sanctuary
The money, given in the name of daughter Shiloh, goes to the place where they spent the holidays with their children.
NEW YORK - Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are donating $2 million to the Namibian sanctuary where they spent Christmas with their children, the Associated Press reported Monday.
The 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, it said.
Said Jolie: "We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth."
The owners of the sanctuary are old friends. "We continue to be impressed by their hard work and dedication to the people and conservation of the land and wildlife of Namibia," Jolie said.
Lodge staff told the AP that the children during their holiday visit helped feed and care for orphaned baby baboons and foxes and watched a leopard being released back into the wild.
