Hollywood super couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie handed over almost $5 million to charitable causes in 2009, according to tax papers.

The stars created the Jolie-Pitt Foundation in order to give cash to deserving organizations, and they donated a huge chunk of their fortune two years ago.

The biggest handout was to Pitt's Make It Right Foundation in New Orleans, Louisiana, which received $2 million, according to the foundation's tax filing, obtained by Showbiz411.com.

Among the other causes to receive handouts were the United Nations' (UN) Pakistan Emergency Fund and children's charity Kind, Inc., which received a $100,000 grant.
