Brad Pitt and his “Make It Right” foundation are doing amazing things for Katrina victims!

Make It Right - Brad PittIn 2007. Hollywood actor Brad Pitt put up $5 million of his own money and raised another $12M to help build new houses for several victims of hurricane Katrina, residing in the lower 9th ward of New Orleans.  Mr. Pitt is known for his role in action movies as well as his humanitarian and charitable efforts.  For lower 9th ward residents, this generosity couldn’t have come at a better time.

The non-profit organization that Mr. Pitt helped found is called the Make It Right Foundation.  In 2008 they began construction on several homes that were designed t0 be, as one blogger put it:

“blueprints for affordable, storm-resistant, and sustainable housing designs.”

By September of 2010, Make It Right had already built 50 homes, and they plan to build 150 more.  What incredible generosity this foundation is displaying.

They are taking responsibility for something because the ones in charge who are supposed to deal with crises (mainly the government) failed to come through in one of New Orleans’ worst time of need.
