At the recent 2013 Variety Power of Women event, everyone’s favorite human Amy Poehler made a touching speech regarding the work of the Worldwide Orphans Foundation (WWO), the same organization that was the beneficiary of Poehler and Jon Hamm’s recent Emmy “losers party.” In the video below, Poehler jokes and moves the audience as she, through tears, urges those around her to consider how fortunate they are. To find out more about the WWO or to donate and take one step towards being as cool as Amy, check out their website, here.

Thanks to Vulture, YouTube and Worldwide Orphans Foundation.
