Reese Witherspoon visited at a New Orleans school for at-risk kids for the upcoming Idol Gives Back special.

Airing April 9th, the show features Reese, 32, at a Children’s Defense Fund Freedom School where troubled children learn to become community leaders.

Back in 2006, Reese (a CDF board member) helped open the city’s first Freedom School.

“Once you have children in your life, you can no longer close your eyes to people… who are in a similar situation,” Reese told ABC News at the time.

Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus, Robin Williams and Mariah Carey will also take part in the Idol Gives Back show.

Last year’s special raised more than $75 million to help fight poverty.

    She does seem normal and her kids well adjusted. I like Reese. She just seems natural. Nice to see her keeping up with the CDF. She just seems like a happy Mom.

    She seems so normal , her kids seem so adjusted and nice. Its nice to see some one who likes to give back, but who also puts her own kids first unlike Denise ‘pimp mamma’ Richards.
