Clownin' Around for A Good Cause

Red Nose Day 2018!


It's Red Nose Day!

My husband picked up a set of red clown noses from Walgreens this morning.

I opened one of them, put it on, then surprised Benny and Toby while they were enjoying a slice of pizza in the dining room.

Their reaction? Contagiously loud laughter!

Today is Red Nose Day, a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., intended to bring people together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who live in poverty and need our help the most.

The campaign has only been around in the U.S. for three years but it encourages families to host fundraisers and donate the proceeds to one of many organizations that help end child poverty in the US and in some of the poorest communities in the world.

Globally, Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion!

For every red nose purchased at Walgreens, you're helping Comic Relief Inc., help children in our country and abroad.


It's really neat! Going forth, it's a cause I definitely hope to be more involved with.

In the meantime friends, make sure you tune in to NBC tonight for all the Red Nose Festivities including:

  • At 8/7c with Celebrity Ninja Warrior for Red Nose Day, which will bring together stars like Derek Hough, Ne-Yo, Nikki Bella, and so many more. For the very first time ever, beloved Ninja Warrior host Akbar Gbajabiamila will attempt the course. You won’t want to miss it.
  • At 10/9c the Red Nose Day celebration on NBC culminates with The Red Nose Day Special, a star-studded hour hosted by the charming friend we all wish we had, Chris Hardwick.

While we get ready for Red Nose Programming on NBC, I'll retreat to my living room where we're taking turns imitating Ronald McDonald, Krusty the Clown and Cepillin... hehe

Thanks for reading!
