    Angelina Jolie's got a lot on her plate, but she always makes time for the causes near and dear to her heart.

    The 37-year-old actress, activist and United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees special envoy is helping the organization raise awareness for World Refugee Day, which is coming up June 20. 

    In the PSA, Jolie poignantly points out that there are over 43 million refugees around the world. Of those in need, UNHCR provides lifesaving assistance to nearly 34 million.

    The organization's goal is to share the stories of refugee families and get the word out so that people across America will extend their generosity and concern to support them.

    Jolie has served as a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for more than a decade, and has visited refugees around the world.
