Pitt makes donation

Brad Pitt has agreed to donate $100,000 to help the Human Rights Campaign raise money for its efforts to support same-sex marriage initiatives in several states. The nation’s largest gay rights group announced Wednesday that Pitt agreed to match contributions from the group’s members up to $100,000. In an e-mail to members of the Human Rights Campaign, Pitt wrote that it’s ‘‘unbelievable’’ that people’s relationships will be put to a vote on Election Day. Same-sex marriage will be on the ballot in Maryland, Maine, Minnesota, and Washington state. The Washington, D.C.-based Human Rights Campaign says it has spent $8 million to push for marriage equality for gays and lesbians over the past two years. (AP)
