Angelina Jolie is not only the highest paid actress in Hollywood, she is one of the world's most powerful humanitarians. She recently was awarded the Humanitarian Award at the 2013 Governors' Ball and it was abundantly clear just how much she cares about the causes she helps.

Jolie's most notable work is as the Goodwill Ambassador for the The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees, which helps protect refugees worldwide. She also donates and works regularly with Doctors Without Borders; co-chairs the Education Partnership for Children of Conflict; and co-founded the Jolie-Pitt Foundation which works to eradicate extreme rural poverty... just to name a few of her many charitable causes. Her incredible history of humanitarian work will continue as she is set to co-Chair a Summit to Combat Sexual Violence in war zones. She will be working alongside British Foreign Secretary William Hague to bring about awareness and change to this urgent and global issue of terror against women.

Since the Holidays are a time to give back and in the spirit of giving, let's look to some more inspirational women and the charities and non-profits they work with for inspiration.
