1. $50,000?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.07.12)
My, oh, my. Each of them commands millions and millions of dollars per film, and the best they can do is $50,000 for tents? Pathetic.
2. #1 Precisely
Amichai ,   Huntsville, US   (12.07.12)
Being an "envoy" is just a left-wing publicity stunt. I'm sure Jolie & Pitt spent more on dining out last year. Leftists are the pinnacle of hypocrisy.
3. The day I see her for more then looks is the day
David ,   Israel   (12.07.12)
She becomes like her father and visits the people in Sderot
4. A real UN envoy
David ,   On this planet   (12.07.12)
every movie she makes is full of violence, blood and killings. just like what the UN represent,"nothing"
5. Jolie
tom driscoll ,   Akron Ohio   (12.07.12)
And its all tax deductible. . It does not remove one dollar from her pocket. Its no cost to her. It comes off the tax she owes in January. She must pay a few million in taxes every years.
6. This clown is a joke!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA   (12.07.12)
How about visiting the Israelis', of the South, while they're being bombed--I thought so!!!
7. to Sarah B
joe ,   kfar saba israel   (12.07.12)

8. 1.
James. ,   Jerusalem.   (12.07.12)
$50.000 is better than nothing.
9. do the same
moriana   (12.07.12)
They do donate almost the same amount every month!!!! -.- and You??????????
10. In the neighborhood, but never stopping in Israel
Raymond in DC ,   Washington, USA   (12.07.12)
Unlike her father, Joh Voigt, who's a great supporter of Israel, Angelina has never to my knowledge set foot in the country. She has however visited refugee camps (Palestinian and now Syrian) in Jordan and Syria several times.
11. mexico could take in millions of sryians, their people are
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.08.12)
all in the US. Just arrange the transport and obumma will come up with the money.
12. To: No. 7
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.08.12)
You do not "get it" because you are not sufficiently intelligent to "get" much of anything. $50,000 out of a combined annual income well in excess of $70 million is nothing. Proportionate to income, I donate considerably more -- around 15% of our total annual income, actually. But I prefer to give to Jewish philanthropies, animal rescue and breast cancer research. I think there are plenty of Arab oil sheikhs who can help the Syrians. I have more important charities to consider.
13. 1 - Sarah, its time you take your ill venom
Eithan ,   Ranana   (12.08.12)
elsewhere. You need to look inward, your problems not getting better here. You need professional help. Good luck.
14. Another Jane Fonda
Drayden Sailus ,   Glendale US   (12.08.12)
Anything to feed the media and your name. Has Jolie been to Israel ?
15. Jolie, do visit the NATO/turkey/al-Qaeda training camp too.
16. #12
Lio ,   London UK   (12.09.12)
You have every right to donate to whichever charity you choose, just as Ms Jolie has every right to donate to whichever charity she chooses. I salute you both for your generosity. #10 - Just shows she can think for herself, and not be swayed by others. I'm sure if you direct her to the refugee camps in Israel, she'll be glad to pay a visit.
17. who?
