The Mirror reports both star actors Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt have given $1 million each to “Color of Change.”
According to their website:
“Color Of Change helps you do something real about injustice.
We design campaigns powerful enough to end practices that unfairly hold Black people back, and champion solutions that move us all forward. Until justice is real.”
Per the Mirror Brad Pitt has matched a million dollar donation made by his ex Jennifer Aniston to a charity advancing the causes of black people.
Jen last week donated the seven figure sum to Color of Change after she was deeply troubled by the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
Now Brad, who split from the Friends star in 2005, has said he will match her big donation.
A source explained: “Brad is really involved with the charity because of Jen and said he would match her donation.
“He went to the protests this week and was at her home the day after. They are both very passionate and want to help as much as they can.”
Brad, 56, and Jennifer split after five years of marriage and he went on to tie the knot with Angelina Jolie, 45, who he has since divorced.
The Once Upon A Time In Hollywood star has remained close friends with Jennifer, 51.
The Mirror reported earlier this month that Aniston has been left “heartbroken” by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis.
She has given the huge sum to Color Of Change – the largest online racial justice organisation in the US, set up to “end practices that unfairly hold black people back”.
My source explains: “Like most people, Jen has been deeply affected by what is going on in America and the terrible injustice that people of colour experience every day.
“She wanted to show her support, and has donated a big sum to the charity she felt resonated with her the most. The link is on her Instagram page so her fans can also donate.”
A conversation about white privilege, systemic racism and ways we can all support each other dominated this week with celebrities – including John Legend, Harry Styles and Ellen DeGeneres – posting about Black Lives Matter charities they have donated to.
