Hey there Hoppereenos,
It is Red Nose Day in the USA today, May 21st, 2015. I am sure there are many that have not heard of it before or have but do not understand just what it is. I am hopping by to give you a quick run down of just what this amazing day is.
I know here at the Addicts, our main goal is helping others. It is one of the reasons we started these sites. It goes further within our real lives. Some of us have local Charities and Organizations we work with, many on a weekly and even daily basis. So I am taking time out of our silly lil games to bring focus to an amazing Charity I adore and have done lots of fundraising for in the past. The Red Nose Day Fund.
What do you think of when you think of a Red Nose? For me, a Clown. Clowns are around to make people laugh and giggle, mainly kids. Laughter and Children is what Red Nose Day is all about. Bringing laughs and giggles to the world and helping Children in return.
Red Nose Day & the Red Nose Fund was set up to raise money to help Children in poverty and need. It is a fundraising campaign set up by Comic Relief. Comedians using their talents and humor to give laughs and get some funds raised in return. Red Nose Day has gone global. For instance in the UK this has been going on for over 30 years, already raising over 1 billion to help those in need. For the main Red Nose Organization Page and more details, go here…
So what happens on Red Nose Day? It is the last day of the main Campaign. In the USA, there will be a live broadcast on NBC, from 8-11PM Eastern Time (check your local listings). Hundreds of Stars have got together to provide sketches and performances to make us all giggle. The benefit will help raise funds for over 12 charity organizations. For more details, you can go to their page here…
The Red Nose Day Campaign began in April and will be ending today, but that never means you should stop. Take a few moments and check out all the really amazing things this Campaign does, and if you are so inclined… donate yourself.
“Paying It Forward” is our main motto here, I know it is mine in life. It makes the world a better place for us all by doing so. Simple things like a donation to an Organization like The Red Nose Fund or doing something for people in our own home town. There is always someone in need, doing something simple can help in so many ways. Paying for someone’s meal at a Restaurant. Paying for someone’s groceries at the store. Helping out an Elderly Neighbor by picking up some groceries for them while you do your shopping, preparing a few meals for them, doing some yard work for them. Helping your local Homeless Shelters by serving some meals, gather clothing and drop it off. Give to your local Food Bank. All things I strive to do daily and am doing in my real life.
What do you think about the Red Nose Fund? Have you participated in it in the past? Have a local Charity yourself you work with? Have a “Pay It Forward” moment you’d like to share? (Whether it was something you did or something someone did for you.) Are you sporting a Red Nose today to help promote the Fund? If so, let us see your Red Nose. Feel free to share below.
Thank Chris, It made me giggle 🙂
