Red Nose Day (To End Child Poverty)
Steve is ready for Red Nose Day! I got my red nose from Walgreens for $1. This year, 2018, it is a little sparkly. See my picture below. The money raised to help several charities that help end child poverty. 100% of the money for the noses, wrist band, like the one I have on in that picture and a pin they sell go to this Red Nose Day Fund.
In just three years, they have raised over $100 Million that helped 8 million children living in poverty.
In 2018, this day is on May 24.
The first Red Nose Day began in the UK in 1988. Since that launch, it has raised over $1 billion. It wasn’t until 2015, it was introduced in the US. Today the money raised benefits children of all 50 states and also in 34 countries internationally.
So get the family together and go nose to nose with the red nose! Have some fun. Maybe even raise money for this fund.
These charities include:
- Boys & Girls Club
- Charity: Water
- Children’s Health Fund
- Feeding America
- Covenant House (Opening Doors for Homeless Youth)
- Gavi (The Vaccine Alliance)
- Laureus (Sport for Good Foundation)
- Save the Children
- International Rescue Committee
- FInd Polio Now
- The Global Fund
- Unidos US (Stronger Communities – Stronger America)

This year, 2018, Red Nose Day is inviting everyone to go Nose to Nose. It is the simple act of two people touching Red Noses in a fun, light way, to create shareable social content while encouraging donations for the cause. Buy two noses at Walgreens, go Nose to Nose, and snap a selfie or video. Share it with the hashtag #GONOSETONOSE then make a donation at rednoseday.org. Challenge your friends to do the same. It’s a fun and easy way to participate.
