Comic Relief is a major charity based in the UK which strives to create a just world free from poverty – and we work 365 days a year to help that vision become a reality.
Our mission is to drive positive change through the power of entertainment.
Since we first set up shop 25 years ago, we’ve been doing three main things…
1, We raise millions of pounds through two big fundraising campaigns – Red Nose Day and Sport Relief.
2, We spend that money in the best possible way to tackle the root causes of poverty and social injustice.
3, We use the power of our brand to raise awareness of the issues that we care most about.
Over the years we’ve inspired a lot of people who don’t normally ‘do’ charity to, well, do charity. The support we’ve had from so many friends has always blown us away – and still does today.
We’ve so far raised over £650m and helped to change millions of lives as a result.
Comic Relief cash has been at work in over 76 countries around the world since it began in 1985.
Comic Relief supports work in the UK as well as overseas and has funded 12,597 projects in the UK to date.
365 days a year
Contrary to popular belief, we work all year round, fighting poverty and social injustice in the UK and across the world.
As Crowdrise dosn't support this charity yet directly, I was advised by them to put the fundrasing link on so you can donate direct to them via http://my.rednoseday.com/kerrytailford
Please help them raise the money they need to help Africa, every bit helps them to go to Africa and give them the means for the people to look after eachother. Training Doctors and nurses for example.
Plus the best bit is that as you don't give Crowdrise the money directly every penny you give via the link above is what they get, nothing is taken out for admin etc.
Thank you x
