Through the power of entertainment, we raise awareness and money to help kids who need us most at home and around the world. Red Nose Day is on a mission to lift kids out of poverty and has raised over over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. Red Nose Day is a special day for Americans to come together to have fun and make a difference for kids. Red Nose Day returns this year to the U.S. on Thursday May 26, 2016. The day's events will culminate in a two-hour live primetime TV special on NBC, featuring the biggest stars across comedy, music, TV and film. Funds raised go to the Red Nose Day Fund which distributes the money through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated. Red Nose Day USA is run by Comic Relief Inc. in the U.S. and Comic Relief UK are independent sister organizations that are joined by their shared vision of a just world, free from poverty and the mission to drive positive change through the power of entertainment. We hope to raise funds and have fun in the process! Laugh. Give. Save a kid.
