Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie decided it was time to help out those devastated by the recent tornadoes in Joplin, Missouri. They donated $500,000 to help rebuild the area.

Brad is a Missouri native and attended the state’s university, so he has a soft spot for the state. He issued a statement on their donation, saying, "With the devastating loss of thirty percent of the city, the Joplin community faces great challenges ahead," he said. "Having spent most of my childhood there, I know these people to be hardworking, humble and especially resilient. The locally based Community Foundation of the Ozarks will be working shoulder to shoulder with these Joplin residents for the long haul as they rebuild their lives. We, too, hope to further help with these rebuilding efforts."
