    To Whom It May Concern:

    I just saw a portion of Larry King’s interview with Brad Pitt regarding “Make it Right.” I feel more Americans want to get involved in charity work and helping those in need, and that it helps all people to be a part of something greater than themselves. But with so many organizations out there, many question to which organization should they direct their efforts, by which one will their money be best spent. Many just don’t know how to get involved and yet want to find an easy way to plug in and help. How can we get involved in the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, or how do you recommend people find and choose an organization in which to get involved? Many are touched by the stories we see on Larry King or other news programs, but the real change, and the real power of Brad, Larry, and the people themselves whose lives are being changed, is that it can involve all of us and we could accomplish so much more. Please allow us to not only make a difference in others lives by giving monetarily, but in our own lives by being able to get involved at the grass roots level and seeing our lives and other’s lives change together. Give us the opportunity to stand face to face with those in need so that we can build a better society through joining together, because that is what we all need.

    I live in Los Angeles, and want to get involved and am willing to travel. At this time, I am not able to make a monetary donation, but I would like to donate my time and efforts. I’m impressed with Brad’s humanitarian efforts, as well as Angelina’s work worldwide. I have experience in this sector, and lived and worked in Africa managing development projects. I would like to rededicate my life to such causes, and from seeing Brad’s interview with Larry, I felt Brad’s new foundation may be a cause in which to involve myself. Could you provide me with any information regarding such?

    Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.
