Tony Hale is keeping one cause close to his heart.

ET caught up with the Veep star at the 2017 Golden Globes, where he highlighted the important work of the International Justice Mission, which advocates for human rights worldwide.

At this year's awards show, ET teamed up with Moet & Chandon for Toast for a Cause, where the champagne company donated $1,000 to each celebrity's charity of choice.

Hale, 46, was eager to shout out the work of the IJM.

"They fight human trafficking, abuse, and slavery against the poor and they're amazing, amazing," the 46-year-old actor shared, noting of Moet's contribution, "That was the best thing of the night."

"Tony has been an incredible friend to IJM and a tireless advocate for ending modern day slavery, human trafficking and violence against the poor," IJM spokeswoman Julie Kilcur told ET in a statement. "We are grateful to have him fighting for justice alongside us as we seek to bring freedom to the more than 45 million people who are living in slavery today."
