Brad Pitt Pledges $10 Million to Rebuild New Orleans

We rather like Brad Pitt. He could have been just another pretty boy, but he is becoming -- along with Angelina Jolie -- a sort of roving ambassador who just happens to act. He could have bolted with gusto when Jolie brought in the umpteenth adopted baby, few would have blamed him. We are also among the few who had the attention span to appreciate the nuance he brought to the character of Jesse James. And now this. From Huffingtonpost:

"Hello from the Clinton Global Initiative! Hollywood film star Brad Pitt just pledged $10 million toward rebuilding the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans at the Clinton Global Initiative on Wednesday afternoon.

"'We're prepared to break ground by the end of the year, but we need your help,' the actor said of his commitment to helping rebuild the New Orleans area hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina. 'We will match dollar for dollar any and every single contribution up to $10 million.'"
