Jolie-Pitt Foundation Donate 150,000 Dollars to SOS Children's Villages USA

By November 30, 2010

Follow me on:

In honor of National Adoption Month, the Jolie-Pitt Foundation announced a donation of 150,000 USD to SOS Children's Villages USA. The SOS Villages focus on keeping children within their biological families, but when that is not possible, they utilize foster care. The American SOS Children's Villages are located in Illinois and Florida and were created in an effort to provide a different system beyond foster care that would help children avoid multiple placement and "aging out of the system." The donation provided by the Jolie-Pitt Foundation will help a family of four foster children in an SOS Children's Village within the US.

It seems like there are several ways to donate to the SOS Children's Villages. If you are interested in following after the example set by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and donate to SOS Children's Villages, see the website for details on how you can help.
