    Now here's a cause that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie can get behind. Even more than they already have, that is.

    Already something of the poster children parents for adoption, the superstar couple has emptied out their wallets to the tune of $150,000, making a donation to the SOS Children's Villages in recognition of National Adoption Day, aiming to encourage adoption and bring awareness to the more than 100,000 children still in need of homes in this country.

    The Jolie-Pitt Foundation's donation to SOS will provide the long-term financial support needed to properly care for a family of four foster children.

    "I am truly thankful that Angelina and Brad understand the power of family—the kind of stable family that SOS holds as an essential part of healthy child development," Dr. Heather Paul, CEO of SOS Children's Villages USA, said. "Together, Angelina and Brad have been eyewitnesses to the great work of SOS...Angelina and Brad know that children's need for a family is universal."

    It's not the first time the duo has aligned themselves with the organization.

    Over the summer, Angelina visited an SOS village in Haiti, bringing toys for children and meeting with government officials to push for better protection of orphaned children. Together, she and Pitt have also visited SOS centers in Chad, Ethiopia and Jordan, and last year donated $100,000 to the cause. Talk about the spirit of giving.
