Well it looks like Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are making headlines in a news section other than entertainment this week according an Associated Press Article.

After visiting and drawing attention to a refugee camp in Bosnia and the lone 15 people still living in it, the U.S. government gave $500,000 donation. The money will be used to construct an apartment complex that could house refugees by September 2011.

Apparently the mayor of the eastern Bosnian town of Rogatica, Radomir Jovicic, said he has rallied for donations for the camp for years, with no results prior to the famous duos visit.

Although it has been reported that neither Jolie’s or Pitt’s name appear on the contract for the apartment or attached to the donation, local town officials and refugees are convinced it was due to the headline grabbing couple.

One refugee camp resident was even quoted in the story saying her will tattoo Jolie’s name on his arm because he considers her a saint.

Guess this is one for the old saying, “It’s all about who you know”……. or who visits your camp?
