What is Red Nose Day?!
Red Nose Day occurs on May 26, 2016 and we’re thrilled to participate with the millions of other folks across the U.S. and the world. Red Nose Day raises money for children’s charities across the world in efforts to cloth, feed, and provide safety and shelter for our youngest and most vulnerable citizens of the world.
Half of the money distributed by Red Nose Day 2016 will be spent right here in the U.S. The other half will be spent in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. All money raised supports projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy, and educated.
Red Nose Day charities include: Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Charity: Water, Children’s Health Fund, Covenant House, Feeding America, OxFam America, and many more!
Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) American public charity. Funds raised go to the Red Nose Day Fund and last year benefited children in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated. Comic Relief Inc. in the US and Comic Relief UK are independent sister organizations that are joined by their shared vision of a just world, free from poverty and the mission to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.
