angelina jolie and the sos children's villages

On a recent trip to Haiti, Angelina Jolie announced that Nathalie Nizile (an alumna of the SOS Children's Village in Santo, Haiti) would become the first recipient of the Jolie Legal Fellow (a creation of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation). Jolie Legal Fellows are attorneys, who work as special assistants to key government officials and whose job it will be, to help children navigate the Haitian Judicial system.

After a stop at yet another orphanage, this one in Namibia Africa, Angie and 6 yr old Zahara, fell in love with a 5 yr old orphan little girl. Zahara supposedly pleaded with Angie to adopt the little girl, because she wanted her as a sister. Hubby Brad was a bit hesitant at first, but in the end, Angie and Zahara won out. 
This will be Brad and Angie's 7th child.

Angelina Jolie and The Jolie-Pitt Foundation are big contributors to the SOS Children’s Villages. In 2009 they donated $100,000 and in November 2010 they donated another $150,000 to the SOS Children’s Villages, USA.
