The ChristmasKindness show inspired thousands to take action, including Brad Pitt, who recently went to Africa to see what he could do to help. "Six-thousand people are dying [from AIDS] a day, needlessly, because they don't have access to the drugs that we have," Brad says. "I feel that it is our responsibility to make those available. I had a woman who just heard about the drugs last week. She grabbed my hand. She said, 'Please. Please help us get the drugs.' ... I think about it every day since and I can't wait to get back.
"I feel like I witnessed the best and the worst of the human condition," Brad explains. "Physically, the worst, but the greatest spirit. We can do something really exciting, and we could help change a nation. And I want to help."
Brad has teamed up with the DATA Foundation, started by U2's front man Bono, www.data.org.
