Red Nose Day is coming to the United States to help raise money for American kids living in poverty. You can get your red nose at any Walgreens, a major sponsor of the project. We bought our noses today for just $1 each.

Red Nose Day is a popular television fundraising event in the U.K. It was started to help bring people together in support of British charities.

On May 21, NBC will host an American version of the show. It will feature star-studded music, comedy and short films all while raising money to help the world’s most vulnerable citizens: children. Fifty percent of all funds raised will stay in the U.S. to help fight poverty here.

The popular website Funny or Die, is also a partner of Red Nose Day on NBC. The three-hour show will feature big names in comedy, music, and TV including Kevin Nealon, Jane Lynch, Cheryl Hines, Sam Smith, Niecy Nash, Gina Rodriguez, John Legend and Justin Long.

One of the things I’m looking forward to is the original short films that feature individual children around the world that Red Nose Day will help. This includes American children living in poverty.

The following charities will receive aid and assistance from this Red Nose Day fundraiser:

Save The Children

Global Fund

Feeding America


Boys & Girls Clubs of America


Charity: Water

Children’s Health Fund

Vaccine Alliance

National Urban League

Oxfam America

United Way

National Council of La Raza

Red Nose Day was started 30 years ago as a way to raise money for children suffering in poverty by simply entertaining people and making them giggle and laugh. Since that time, the event has raised more than $1 billion for work throughout the United Kingdom.
