If you’re not familiar with this popular charity event in the UK and haven’t yet seen a commercial on NBC or read a story about the Red Nose Day USA initiative, we’re happy to explain. As proud members of the Red Nose Club, a 10 women media team charged with spreading the message of Red Nose Day, we’re asking you participate in the “fun-raising” campaign that supports non-profit organizations that help lift children and young adults out of poverty in the US and around the globe!
What is Red Nose Day
Red Nose Day has been celebrated in the United Kingdom for more than 25 years. It’s a hugely successful fun-raising event and it encourages people to don red noses and have a good laugh for a good cause. Red Nose Day’s five-week campaign will culminate in NBC’s televised fundraising event in New York City on May 21 (8-11 p.m. ET). The live three-hour benefit will feature popular comedians, top musicians and Hollywood stars, featuring an engaging mix of great comedy, live musical performances and short, compelling films shedding light on the cause.
Red Nose Day Begins at Walgreens
As the exclusive retail partner for Red Nose Day, Walgreens makes getting involved easy and fun. From April 17th through May 30th, Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide will sell red noses for $1 each, with proceeds contributed to the Red Nose Day Fund.
