Pitt formed the Make It Right Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to build 150 affordable, "green," and (especially) flood-proof houses in New Orleans' worst affected district. It was a dream come true for the low-income families, who could not only buy a fancy, flood-proof house for a mere $130,000, but could also brag that they got it from the weird dude from Snatch.
But sadly, Pitt's humanitarian efforts weren't as perfect as his dimples. After people moved into the Make It Right homes, many started complaining about mold, rotten wood, leaky roofs, and other unsafe conditions. As it turns out, these fancy postmodern pads were built out of materials unsuitable for a humid climate. And how the hell are your flood-proof houses going to withstand another Katrina if they can't withstand "existing"?
