Today is Red Nose Day

Below is text from the Red Nose Day web­site:

Red Nose Day is a cam­paign ded­i­cated to rais­ing money for chil­dren and young peo­ple liv­ing in poverty by sim­ply hav­ing fun and mak­ing peo­ple laugh. The inau­gural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015. Peo­ple across the coun­try will come together to have fun and raise funds and aware­ness. The day’s events will cul­mi­nate in a three-hour enter­tain­ment TV spe­cial on NBC fea­tur­ing the country’s favorite come­di­ans, musi­cians and Hol­ly­wood stars—it’s a show not to be missed!

Money raised dur­ing the Red Nose Day cam­paign goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which then dis­trib­utes grants to char­i­ties that ben­e­fit chil­dren and young peo­ple in the US and some of the poor­est com­mu­ni­ties in the world. This year, we’ve part­nered with twelve amaz­ing non­profit orga­ni­za­tions that work towards Red Nose Day’s goal of keep­ing chil­dren safe, edu­cated and healthy!
