Brad Pitt Helps Rebuild New Orleans

December 3, 2007 By:


Brad Pitt seems to be following in the footsteps of his wife Angelina Jolie as he steps to the forefront in the rebuilding of New Orleans.

Pitt spoke about his latest initiative, "Make It Right", on the Today Show this morning, as he walked through the devastated neighborhoods in New Orleans.

Pitt expects the foundations for 150 eco-friendly homes to be completed by the end of summer, even donating $5 million of his own money toward the project. He has teamed up with 13 architects for the project, and explained that each home will be built on stilts as a precaution against the threat of flooding.

He says design requirements for the homes are affordability, sustainability, safety — and that they be beautiful. Oh Brad, anything you do is beautiful to us. I'm sure the houses will be just fine!
