Angelina Jolie has donated $1 million to fight child hunger during the coronavirus pandemic. The 44-year-old Maleficent star made the contribution to No Kid Hungry, she told E!: “As of this week, over a billion children are out of school worldwide because of closures linked to coronavirus.”
Jolie continued: “Many children depend on the care and nutrition they receive during school hours, including nearly 22 million children in America who rely on food support. No Kid Hungry is making resolute efforts to reach as many of those children as possible.”
Jolie is in good company. Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard have waived tenants’ rent in April, and they’ve donated $150,007.96 to No Kid Hungry.

I made a wish to the Universe to gather protective masks for our brave healthcare workers and today my dream came true.”
