Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are starting off the New Year on generous footing with a huge $2 million donation to the Naankuse Wildlife Sanctuary in Namibia.
The superstar couple announced the gift through their Jolie-Pitt Foundation after spending the holidays at the sanctuary with their kids. The donation was made in honor of their daughter Shiloh, who was born in Namibia.
“We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth,” Angelina said in a statement. “We have known Rudie and Marlice for many years and continue to be impressed by their hard work and dedication to the people and conservation of the land and wildlife of Namibia.”
According to MonstersandCritics.com, staff at the sanctuary have revealed the family’s experiences included watching orphaned baby baboons and foxes being fed, visiting a local school and seeing the release of a leopard back into the wild.
