Hollywood actors and couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are known for the streak of philanthropy that they have shown ever since they came together, a couple of years back. Be it their much publicized adoptions or their personal contributions to charities, the couple have always been projected as possessing a large heart.
And the same heart came to the forefront when Brangelina donated an amount of $2 million to the ‘Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary’ located in Namibia of South Africa.
According to reports in the media, the Hollywood couple also spent their Christmas vacations at the Naankuse Lodge with the entire clan of six children. And it was their children’s involvement in the daily activities of the wild animals in the Naankuse Sanctuary that inspired the couple to shell out money for their well being. Angelina Jolie later confirmed in a statement to the media that she wants her eldest biological child Shiloh to be involved in some way with her birthplace and that is why the couple issued the money in Shiloh’s name.
Reports from the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary claim that the Hollywood couple’s children had a great time playing with and feeding the baby foxes and baboons inside the reserve. A leopard was also let out into the wild during Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s stay in the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia. The $2 million contribution by Brangelina will however not be used for only animal welfare but also for the welfare of the backward African society in Namibia. Reports suggest that a greater part of the donation will go towards medical expenditure of the poor Namibians. .
