Brad Pitt has a younger brother, Doug Pitt, who is speaking out about a project that is near and dear to his heart. He is heading up the ‘Care to Learn’ Project that has to do with helping kids in need. Specifically, the project focuses on the health, hunger and personal hygiene needs of children in the Springfield, Missouri area.

“The idea was to help kids that show up on a school day with an immediate need. We need to get to them quick, obviously. So we set up this fund to do just that. Last week, we had a kid need clothes and food. And within 20 minutes – from the phone call – counselors, teachers, principals, make a call to the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools. And they’re on it. They now have the funds to address that urgent need.?

Doug Pitt is a Springfield, Missouri business man and philanthropist. He says that he recognized a need to give assistance to school children in the area and felt it was a need that could be addressed immediately and effectively. He founded the foundation to do just that. He solicited the help of his older brother and as he says, Brad stepped up to the plate and offered matching funds through the Pitt-Jolie Foundation. That is a foundation founded and supported by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

It doesn’t hurt Doug’s cause that he has easy access to the media because of his relationship to his famous older brother. That’s all the better considering that his cause is very worthwhile.
