Angelina Jolie Donates $100,000 to UN on World Refugee Day
Who says celebrity can't be used for good?
Angelina Jolie marked the 20th of June - World Refugee Day 2012 - with a donation of $100,000 for the U.N.’s work in helping Syrian refugees.
“Unfortunately, the world is producing displaced people faster than it is producing solutions to displacement. And the solutions are not exclusively humanitarian, they are also political,” the 37-year-old actress said in a statement.
“The international community should rededicate itself to preventing conflict, addressing it when it erupts, and solving it more quickly, for that is the only way to create durable solutions for the refugees whose strength inspires us on this World Refugee Day.”
Seeing Angelina Jolie as Maleficent is very cool, but seeing her continue to wield her fame and fortune for important causes is an inspiration.
