Doug Pitt, a Missouri entrepreneur in his 40s, owns ServiceWorld Computer Center and a real estate development company. He’s involved in several humanitarian causes, serving as Director of WorldServe International (a charity providing drinking water across east Africa), an advisor to Africa 6000 (another water charity) and the United Republic of Tanzania’s inaugural Goodwill Ambassador. He also founded Care to Learn, which provides immediate financial and physical help to kids who come to school with health, hunger or hygiene needs.
Oh, and one other thing: Doug Pitt happens to be actor Brad Pitt’s younger brother.
