Amy Poehler.

What’s not to love about this woman?

In an age where most celebrities become celebrities simply by focusing all of their time and energy inward, a process that’s epitomized by the current  Miley Cyrus   It’s All About Me media scrum,  it’s nice to see that there are still a few class acts left in the arena.

I mean, think about it. Who doesn’t love Amy Poehler?  She’s funny, smart, accomplished, beautiful….did I mention funny?

Oh, did you know she also works tirelessly on behalf of orphans from around the world?

She recently gave a speech at the 2013 Variety of Power Women event in California  and spoke about the work of the Worldwide Orphans Foundation, a group, given how emotional she becomes during the speech, she obviously feels very strongly about.

I like seeing this side to her. It’s interesting to see this sort of emotion from someone who has provoked so much laughter through the years.

Plus, she does manages a few jokes in as well.

That’s reason 1524!
