Filed under: AnglophiliaPolitikSad Sad

Eddie Izzard is known for being one of the funniest comedians, not only in England, but in the world!

Just because he knows how to tickle some funny bones - that doesn't mean life is all giggles for him!

He proved that point when he went to Syria to meet with some of the child refugees over there, and what he found was just heartbreaking!

We cannot believe the squalid conditions these CHILDREN are forced to survive through, and it's just awful that these kids have been put in such a desperate situation!

We're glad to see this man bring awareness to a place that so desperately needs it.

Just another day in the life of Saint Jolie!

Yes, Mz. Angelina Jolie visited the Turkey and Syrian border this week to meet with Syrian refugees as part of her duties as an ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.

During her visit, Angie will meet with some of the 9,600 people who have fled the violent protests occurring in Syria.

Just before she arrived, Turkish authorities held a banner that read:

"Goodness Angel of the World, Welcome."

As always, it's so wonderful to see her continue to use her fame to cause awareness around the world.

So inspiring.
