Brad Pitt Will Donate Up To $100,000 To Gay Marriage Campaigns, If You Help

It’s unbelievable to me that people’s lives and relationships are literally being voted on in a matter of days. In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else. But that’s the system we have and I’m not going to back down from the fight for loving and committed couples to have the ability to marry. Especially when groups like the Human Rights Campaign are fighting these battles day-in and day-out. So, here’s what I’m going to do. If you make a contribution to these ballot measure campaigns in the next 24 hours, I’ll double it – every dollar of the way, up to $100,000.”

Noted perfume pusher Brad Pitt lends a helping hand to the Human Rights Campaign.

      He got $7million for that ridiculous Chanel ad – probably an afternoon’s work at most.
      Just sayin’…

      Thanks, Brad! That’s awesome. He also gave $100K to Prop 8 early on (and pressured others in the industry to give) as well as starring in the play “8” for a one-night huge fundraiser. I appreciate the sentiment, timing, and generousity!

      Hey, Brad has an enormous gay fan base. It’s the least he can do!! I can’t imagine
      how much money we have contributed to seeing his movies etc.
