Angelina Jolie, James Haven

It appears that humanitarian efforts are in the family genes.

Angelina Jolie's brother, James Haven, wrote an article about child-abuse issues on The Huffington Post today.

The 40-year-old actor serves as the honorary Senior Advisor on Global Issues at Harvard and is the founder of the CoreCause Foundation—which aims to deal with "the world's causes from a preventative rather than recovery standpoint."

In his post, titled We the People, Haven touches on the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution and supplies facts about children's drug use and mental health in the country today.

"Child abuse and neglect in America is growing at a very high rate," he explained. "But I have good news.. Justice is coming!"

Jolie's brother then goes on to motivate readers to set an example and demand that changes be made to the increasingly disturbing patterns of child issues throughout the country.

He may have some big shoes to fill as a brother to Hollywood royalty, but he's already fulfilling the part!
