The photo images of the twin children recently born to Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are being sold for a large sum of money to be put on the cover of People magazine, as well as, Hello magazine in London; the money will go for charity to the Jolie-Pitt foundation. The amount is rumored to be around $14 million dollars for the rights to the photos.
Both Angelina and Brad have set a precedence of using the money gained from the media for photographing their children; to be used for good, as far as, harnassing the intense competition of the media to get those first pictures. The large sums of money will go a long way to continue funding the humanitarian and good will charities that they both support around the world.
Tonight, Sunday, August 3rd, 2008 at 7 pm, eastern time there will be a release of one of the photos on http://www.people.com . Then the release of the newstand version of People magazine will be available on Monday, August 4th.
The twins, Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline were born July 12th in Nice, France. Imagine the impact that the children of this family will have, in years to come, with the financial backing, of their parent’s combined large bank accounts and their dedicated role modeling of giving, along with the social and moral training in the area of giving, to those in need around the world. I mean, they are already giving…they just don’t know it yet! It is a legacy that few are priviledged to have, and even fewer are apt to enact; but, it is a legacy worthy of example.
