The do-gooding just keeps on coming from Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

The classy couple, along with the rest of Brad's family, have donated $1 million to a Missouri hospital.

Doug Pitt, Brad's brother, announced that they would be giving the cash to St. John's Hospital in Springfield, and that it will be used to establish an endowment fund to pay children's cancer specialists.

The hospital's cancer treatment unit will be renamed the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center, in honor of Brad's mom, who is a big advocate for children's issues.

St. John's is matching the generous donation, providing the hospital with the help to also build a new pediatric unit, a 10-bedroom hospital-based Ronald McDonald house and doubling the size of the neonatal and pediatric intensive care units.

It's stuff like this that just makes you proud to like certain celebs. It's such a nice change from one DUI story after another.
