(Newser) – Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie quickly shifted into humanitarian mode following the earthquake in Haiti, donating $1 million through their charitable foundation. The funds will go to Doctors Without Borders, People reports. “We understand the first response is critical to serve the immediate needs of countless people who are now displaced from their homes, are suffering trauma, and most require urgent care,” says Pitt.

Jolie adds, “It is incredibly horrible to see a catastrophe of this size hit a people who have been suffering from extreme poverty, violence, and unrest for so many decades.”
