Amy Poehler: “There Are So Many Children in This World Who Have Nothing”
She’s an amazing actress and an even more impressive human being, and Amy Poehler is all about helping destitute kids around the globe.
The “Parks and Recreation” star attended Variety’s Power of Women Event over the weekend, where she was recognized for her efforts with the Worldwide Orphans Foundation.
And during her acceptance speech, Amy was overcome with emotion as she shared her heart behind the cause.
Poehler declared, “There are so many children in the world who have nothing. They have nothing. They have no one who lights up when they walk into a room and they have no clothes and safety and food. They have nothing. And so who are we to be in this room and to be living this life without helping them?”
