Worldwide Orphans works to transform the lives of children who have lost their parents and to offer them a sense of hope and belonging.
By Patricia Abaroa
Amy Poehler may not have received the Primetime Emmy for her work on NBC’s Parks and Recreation, but she didn’t let that spoil her evening. Along with Jon Hamm, Poehler hosted a loser’s party where winners were only allowed to attend after making a $1,000 donation to the Worldwide Orphans Foundations (WWO). The night ended with $30,000 in donations, from winners and losers, alike.
Poehler is not alone. Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Kyle Maclachlan, Oprah Winfrey and dozens of other celebrities have all been vocal advocates of the organization that looks to transform the lives of orphaned children in Bulgaria, Ethiopia, Haiti, Serbia and Vietnam.
