With the generous support of millions of Americans, hundreds of celebrities, and key partners, Red Nose Day has raised nearly $150 million since launching in the U.S. in 2015. Funds raised are evenly split to support domestic and international programs that ensure children in need are safe, healthy, and educated.
Food Bank of the Rockies has benefited from Red Nose Day and we’re excited to again participate! Did you know almost half the food we distribute will feed children?
Janet Scardino, CEO of Comic Relief USA, said, “Red Nose Day is all about making it fun to make a difference.”
“When we brought Red Nose Day to America, my hope was that we could inspire people to realize we can all truly make a difference for kids living really tough lives – and have fun doing so,” said Richard Curtis, co-founder of Red Nose Day. “As Red Nose Day USA enters its fifth year, it’s clear that it’s found a special place in millions of Americans’ hearts already, and they have really made it their own. I’m thrilled to see what’s yet to come.”
Red Nose Day’s core partners have provided critical support for the charity event since the campaign’s launch in the U.S. and will continue to play an integral role in raising both awareness and vital funds to help children most in need. The efforts of these market leaders to support the campaign highlight the important role business plays in changing the world for the better.
Thank you to all who participate and support helping kids everywhere. We appreciate you!
