Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $1 million dollars to help children who are affected by the Iraq war, both Iraqi children and the children of service men and women.

If Brad and Angelina, who don't need it, get some publicity for helping out untold thousands of people, more power to them:

A foundation started by Hollywood film stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt has donated $1 million to children impacted by the war in Iraq.
Usmagazine.com said the Jolie-Pitt Foundation has pledged $500,000 for school supplies and education programs for refugee children in Iraq, as well as $500,000 for U.S. children who have either lost a parent deployed in Iraq or have a parent serving there.
The donations for U.S. children will go to a tutoring initiative at the Armed Services YMCA Operation Hero Program, the entertainment news Web site said.
Jolie, who is pregnant with her and Pitt's fifth and sixth children, is a goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees
