Brangelina to the rescue

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have made good on their promise to reachout to victims of the massive earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have made good on their promise to reach out to victims of the massive earthquake that struck Haiti on Tuesday, usmagazine.com reports.

The couple donated $1 million US to the Doctors Without Borders for the organization’s emergency medical operations in Haiti, the website has confirmed.

“It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence and unrest for so many decades,” Jolie, who has served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations since 2001, said in a statement.

Pitt — who, along with Jolie, has been a longtime supporter of Doctors Without Borders — added, “We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care.”
