Amy Poehler and Jon Hamm’s Emmy losses are the Worldwide Orphans charity’s gains.

The stars, who have been nominated several times in recent years only to lose at each ceremony, threw a party for fellow Emmy losers on Sunday night, with proceeds going to a good cause.

Poehler and Hamm — who each lost again this year for Lead Actress in a Comedy and Lead Actor in a Drama, respectively — invited their fellow attendees to a bash at Hollywood’s SoHo House.

The catch: Emmy statues were not allowed, and any winners who wanted to partake had to donate $1,000 each to Worldwide Orphans.

With some losers ponying up as well, Poehler and Hamm raised $30,000.

Not too shabby.
