BRAD Pitt and Angelina Jolie have donated $100000 (R7,4m) to two foster-care homes.

The couple - who raise six children together - gave the American SOS villages in Florida and Illinois the Christmas present after being impressed by their work.

Jolie said of the generous gift: "We have seen first-hand the remarkable job SOS does to raise orphaned and abandoned children and keep families together.

"No one 'ages out' of an SOS village: vocational training, advanced education, living assistance and more support are there forever,'' she added.

The SOS villages house more than 200 disadvantaged children.

Pitt said: "In this holiday season, many of us take for granted that we are surrounded by loving family members. The poor outcomes for foster children indicate that we must do a much better job of supporting them." - Bang
