Come Help OrthoAccel Make a difference in our world.... Red Nose Day is a special day to have fun, come together and make a difference for kids. Uniting celebrities, comedy and YOU, Red Nose Day raises awareness and money to help kids who need our help the most - here at home and around the world. On May 26, people across the country will get involved by wearing Red Noses, organizing FUN-raisers and watching the live TV special that brings together the biggest stars for a night of fun and laughs all in the name of an awesome cause, only on NBC, 9-11 p.m ET. Red Nose Day is on a mission to fight kids poverty and has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years. Money raised helps to change the lives of children and young people in need through projects to keep them safe, healthy and educated. Half of the money will support programs right here in America. The other half will support programs in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia. Every dollar helps! You probably hear that a lot, but what does it mean?
