Saturday Video Shout-Out: Brad Pitt and the Make it Right Foundation

For those of you that haven't had a chance to watch Spoke Lee's documentary If God is willing and da creek don't rise, he highlighted the unselfish efforts of Brad Pitt's Make it Right Foundation.
More than 4,000 homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Two years later, when actor Brad Pitt toured the city, the neighborhood was still deserted and devastated. Pitt promised the families he met there, that he would help make it right. He founded Make It Right to build 150 affordable, green storm resistant homes for families living in the Lower 9th Ward when the storm hit.

It's nice to see celebs in the news for honest-to-goodness charitable works rather than a photo op. Hat tip to you, Mr. Pitt.
