Red Nose Day?? What the….?

Yesterday, I forgot to wear a red nose, so Heather punched me as hard as she could, right on the nose. She said, “There, now you don’t have to worry about it.

Just what is this National Red Nose Day? At first I thought they had missed the date by seven months. Then I read about it. In so many cases, when organizations try to promote donations, they get the message out, but I don’t know how many people actually give money.

In that sense, Red Nose Day is brilliant! It certainly got my attention. Why were all of these celebrities wearing these crazy red noses? I watched “The Tonight Show” last night and although it was as funny as ever, I was disappointed that there was no red ball on his face.

So, what is it all about? I’ll do my best to explain it, and if you’re confused by the time I finish, which will most likely be the case, you can go to rednosedayusa.com

According to the website, “Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to raising money for children and young people living in poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. The inaugural Red Nose Day will be held in the US on May 21st, 2015. People across the country will come together to have fun and raise funds and awareness.”

“Join in the fun and start planning how you can help support Red Nose Day in your community! It’s so easy and the opportunities are endless. Check out our Fundraising page for ideas!”

I know I’m a little late with this topic, but you can still donate on the website and still organize an event in your neighborhood, church, club – whatever. There are so many that go without, when it isn’t necessary.

Heather and I hosted a gala for mission trips to Uganda. These people are not just going there, they are building schools, bringing food for the hungry, school supplies, etc. All of the things we take for granted.

The cool thing about red nose day is that half of the money raised will go to the impoverished people in countries, but the other half will go to help children and families here in the United States.

So  even though the event was yesterday, you can still help. Go to rednosedayusa.com
