The focus of the interview was Pitt’s efforts to rebuild New Orleans through the Make It Right Foundation, which is designing and building homes to be to be green and sustainable. The actor has pledged $5 million of his own money to the project, with another $5 million coming from "someone else." But Pitt hopes to make this a national effort:

This is really an adopt a house campaign. I’m asking for foundations, for high network individuals, for church groups, for corporations to come in and adopt a house. $150,000 will get a family back into their homes…

Individuals can participate too. Explains Pitt:

If they come on the website you can adopt a low flush toilet or solar panel, these are all sustainable…That’s my hope, yeah – if you go on and do that, I’m gonna get my dad a tankless water heater – I just spoiled the surprise – but that’s my hope here, it’s a call on the American people to come here during the holiday season – to come to our website, and to help these families get back into their homes.

And seriously, New Orleans is a travel bargain with awesome food, beautiful hotels and a wonderful vibe.
