Red Nose Day raised over 23 million dollars last year helping to change the lives of children and families in the US and around the world.
Hosted by comedian, actor, writer and director Craig Ferguson, the 2016 Red Nose Day festivities will air live Thursday, May 26th at 9PM EST on NBC http://www.nbc.com/. The star studded special not only features celebrities such as musician John Legend, actors Neil Patrick Harris, Anna Kendrick and comedian Michael Che but gives us an inspiring glimpse of what fun-raising actually provides for children and families across the United States and around the world. Donations distribute meals for children in homeless shelters, medicines to treat pneumonia, anti-malaria nets to protect babies, books for students learning to read and so much more. For additional information and fun-raising ideas check out the official Red Nose Day website.
The Red Nose Day Fund is a program of Comic Relief Inc. http://comicrelief.org/
