Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie may be the most hard working celebrities alive today. Despite their prosperous film careers they each are leading the way in using their high-profiles to point the cameras on critical issues facing the world and our country. But not only are they raising awareness but they are actively promoting solutions.
Brad Pitt just announced his intentions of helping to rebuild New Orleans by commissioning 150 eco-friendly homes in the Louisiana city’s Lower 9th Ward, an area devastated by Hurricane Katrina. These homes have been designed by architects from around the world who were given the challenge of keeping the costs at $150,00 or less and include designs that take into account the possibility of another flood (floating house). You can contribute by sponsoring these homes, visit Make It Right 9 for more information.
