Angelina Jolie's video for World Refugee Day 2010 [Updated]
"Please remember the millions of people around the world forced from their homes, whose only hope of return is to not be forgotten," Brad Pitt's companion urges, in a message also noting that those who "flee from conflict and persecution" might be prevented from returning home for years -- or forever.
Jolie should know. Starting with a trip to Sierra Leone in 2001, the actress has done at least 30 field missions to places including Thailand, Afghanistan and even Arizona. Just this April, she and Pitt met with refugees in Bosnia.
