Source: DoSomethingGood - Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are not only known as superstar A-list actors, but also as two of the biggest philanthropists in Tinseltown. The couple and their children spent Christmas in Namibia (the birthplace of their daughter Shiloh!) and rounded out 2010 with a partnership with the N/a'an ku sê Lodge and Wildlife Sanctuary, a $2 million donation on behalf of the Jolie-Pitt Foundation, and a very CGG-esque start to the new year.
Founded in 2007, the N/a'an ku sê Lodge & Wildlife Sanctuary is dedicated to conserving Namibian wildlife and rescuing threatened species; it provides a safe haven for orphaned and injured animals to be cared for while they cannot survive on their own in the wild. The Jolie-Pitt Foundation's donation will help maintain a clinic that offers free medical care, in addition to being used for large-scale animal conservation projects.
Mom and Dad weren't the only ones doing some good – during their stay at the lodge, Shiloh and her siblings even helped feed orphaned baby baboons and foxes. Talk about getting up close and personal!

Styler, 57, who released a yoga exercise DVD in 2009, is launching another workout video called Weight Loss Yoga in March 2011.Both she and Sting, 59, have been doing yoga for 20 years, crediting their daily workouts with a happier marriage and an increased feeling of well-being in all areas of their lives.
Despite their disciplined approach to exercise, Styler and Sting indulge their joie de vivre. "We're epicureans; we believe in the good life," Sting tells the February 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar.Styler adds, "Eating's pretty major; we have feasts at our house."
Another major component of their happy marriage is plenty of "tawdry" sex."
I don't think pedestrian sex is very interesting," says Sting. "I like the theater of sex. I like to look good. I like her to dress up. I like to dress her up."Trudie and Styler, who have been together for almost 30 years, have raised six children together and weathered ups and downs in both their personal and professional lives.
Through it all, they've managed to stay in love despite the pitfalls of fame, fortune and temptation. So what's their secret?
"We treat every day as it comes," Sting explains. "Relationships aren't easy, and I don't think they're particularly natural, but we're lucky because we actually like each other."
We love each other--that's a given--but Trudie lights my world up when she comes into a room. I don't take her for granted.
"Communication is also key. "It's important to have frank discussions about what the other wants," Styler says.
"To be in a relationship that is like a little lifetime, that's a challenge."
