Brad Pitt is giving away aÂ lot these days what with cocktail parties and his hand in marriage to Jolie, but he is also the newÂ face of humanitarianism.Â Pitt is backing Global Green USA on a project to find environmentally-friendly designs for rebuilding New Orleans.Â Pitt wishes to make the Louisiana city better yet “respect traditions” and will lead a panel of experts to pick the winning design.Â The winner is to be selected on the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina on August 29th.
Pitt states, “We could possibly build something that was better and took into account the historical traditions of the city and the voices of the people and turn this into some kind of good.”
“Our goal is to actually implement them and to get them built and hopefully give a kick-start to a much needed redevelopment process.”
Brad Pitt is currently in Namibia with Angelina Jolie & family.Â He has not addressed the rumors regarding a wedding ceremony or that he was voted #100 on the ’100 Unsexiest Men in the World‘ list.Â He did, however, give us the following quotes.Â
“Namibia’s just a country we’re very fond of.Â It’s a beautiful land and hospitable people and a place that we want to be for the time being.”
