  • Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt visited a Bosnian refugee camp, and suddenly, the U.S. government donated $500,000. The mayor of the eastern Bosnian town of Rogatica said that he had lobbied for donations for years, but the Jolie-Pitt visit in April was the turning point.

    "I will tattoo her name here," said camp resident Goran Markovic, 47, pointing to one of his arms. After the April visit, refugee camp residents called Jolie their "beauty." But when they found out about the U.S. donation she became "our saint," said Markovic.
