While the rest us watched A Christmas Story at Motel 6 with eight of our family members snoring away next to us, the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt clan celebrated the holidays in an animal reserve in Namibia, feeding orphaned baboons and foxes, and watching a leopard get released back into the wild. Yeah well, they still probably fought over who got to open their presents first, right? Since then, Jolie and Pitt have donated $2 million to the Naankuse Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary in the name in Namibian-born daughter Shiloh. “We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth,” Brangelina’s rep said Sunday. We had forgot that Shiloh was, in fact, born in Africa, though to be fair we’d need to make an Excel spreadsheet to track exactly where all the miniature Jolie-Pitts came into this world.
The huge chunk of change has the sanctuary’s owners Rudie and Marlice van Vuuren feeling “overjoyed.” Said Dara Barrett, head of finance at Naankuse, “Some of the donated funds will be used in the running of a clinic which provides free medical care to the community of bushmen, including the treatment of malnutrition, tuberculosis and HIV.” Wow, leave it to Angie and Brad to make the iPod Nano we gave our boyfriend look like a pair of itchy pink bunny pajamas.
