Because spending time with their own multi-cluster of children just doesn't cut it.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt made their way to Jordan recently, by invitation of the Queen Noor and they visited the SOS Children's Village. Angie had once visited the village back in 2003, where she covered the costs for one family's home. This time, she brought her partner in crime and together, spent the day meeting and playing with the abandoned children. Angie pointed out:
"The SOS model of providing care for children without parental care is one of the best, as they are still in a family setting within their own country. We hope more people learn about their programmes and give them support. We are very grateful to her Majesty Queen Noor for all she has done for displaced Iraqis since 2003 and appreciate the dedication of King Abdullah and Queen Rania to their incredible humanitarian initiatives."
While visiting, Angelina pledged to assist in the upcoming radio campaign called "SOS!Childhood." The program, which starts later this month, is designed to build "awareness for the fact that childhood is at risk and that everybody should support this noble cause in every part of the world."
Also, in case you were interested, Angelina and Brad did not take any of the children home with them. Somehow, the managed to restrain themselves.
Keep up the good work you two!
