Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie quickly reacted to the disastrous earthquake in Haiti, publicly pledging their support for the victims of Tuesday’s 7.0 tremor.
“We are devastated by the news from Haiti,” the superstar couple said in a statement. “We will work closely with our good friend Wyclef Jean to support the humanitarian efforts on the island and help those who have been injured and left without homes and shelter.”
Both stars are noted humanitarians for their respective efforts involving Hurricane Katrina relief, the United Nations and other philanthropic causes.
Jean, a native Haitian, issued a statement offering concerned citizens a pair of ways to contribute to the relief efforts. People can help via a $5 donation to his Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund by texting “Yele” to 501501 (the $5 will be charged to your cell phone bill) or by visiting www.Yele.org.
