Puhhleaze

Good grief.
It seems that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have decided to sell pictures of their newborn child, Shiloh, in order to give the proceeds to an un-named charity. Their concern is for the welfare of newborns dying all over the globe.
I'm confused, though. Why don't they just take some money from the 46.8 gajillion dollars they have in their bank account to donate to charity? Why do they need to sell pictures of their daughter? I mean, it's for a good cause and all, but could this perhaps be a ploy to stay in the limelight a little longer? Hmmm, something to think about....


"The images, taken at a private photo shoot, will be distributed by Getty Images, the photo agency said Monday. All profits will be given to charity, though no specific foundation was announced. "While we celebrate the joy of the birth of our daughter, we recognize that two million babies born every year in the developing world die on the first day of their lives," the couple said in a joint statement. "These children can be saved, but only if governments around the world make it priority." Deb Trevino, a spokeswoman for Getty Images, told The Associated Press the family would later name the charity that will receive the funds. She would not disclose how much the photos were being sold for, or when they would be distributed."

But at least they do sooooo much more than most people, let alone stars. I can't agree with all their decisions, but they do help many, many people.

You mentioned you wanted to play Tackle It Tuesday - YEAH! :)

(Remember it can be a small project - something you can conquer in 15 minutes if that is all the time you have)

I will be back tomorrow. I put your link inmy post.

See you soon :)

I think they have been in the limelight just a bit too much! Doesn't the Bible talk about not boasting when you do good. To just do it!

Don't get me wrong I agree with Janice that they do a lot for others but...

I thought earlier that the couple adopted a baby.

I also wonder WHY clothing companies have loaded down the Jolie-Pitt baby with clothes, gold plated binkies, etc.. when they have $$ to buy clothes. Why not donate those baby clothes to people who really need them for their babies?

I just don't get it.
