'Brangelina's $2M donation: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt help out wildlife sanctuary in Namibia

01/03/2011 by Corinne Heller

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, a power couple often dubbed "Brangelina," have donated $2 million to a wildlife sanctuary in Namibia, where they stayed during a recent Christmas trip with their six children.

The couple's 4-year-old daughter Shiloh, their first biological child, was born in the African country. The N/a'an ku sÍ Wildlife Sanctuary accommodates orphaned and injured animals such as lions, leopards, cheetahs, wild dogs and baboons, according to its official website, and the actors are friends of its owners.

Their donation was made through the couple's Jolie-Pitt Foundation in Shiloh's name.

"We want her to be very involved and grow up with the understanding of her country of birth," the Associated Press quoted Jolie as saying. "We continue to be impressed by their hard work and dedication to the people and conservation of the land and wildlife of Namibia."

Jolie, 35, had said in mid-December she and her family would travel to a "random part of the world" over the holiday season and "have an adventure".

She and Pitt, who recently turned 47, were photographed on December 23 wearing sunglasses in a busy store in the African country, pushing a shopping cart that contained what appeared to be battery-powered Mud Slinger Jeep toys.
