Red Nose Day was established in 1985 by a British organization called Comic Relief with the goal of creating a world free from poverty.
Millions of people participated that first year, and since then, it has grown into a massive global awareness and fundraising campaign that is making an effort to make sure every child is healthy, safe, educated and empowered for the future. Since 2015 alone, Red Nose Day has raised over $60 million to help kids that are most in need, and these funds are funneled into children’s programs in all 50 states, as well as some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Red Nose Day is being celebrated in the U.S. on May 25th, and that’s still about 3 weeks away! But the staff here at NTHS national headquarters has already donned our red noses, and we’re taking up collections for a staff donation! Now we want to see how YOU’RE helping with this project!
We’re challenging all our NTHS chapters across the country to get involved! Start a fundraising campaign at your
school! Send us your red nose pictures! Tell us your story of how you’re getting involved this year! Make us laugh while making a difference!
All entries can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and who knows? There just may be a special prize for the chapter or school that we think is making the biggest impact!
