You know that feeling when you do something really silly by accident in front of everyone and your face turns bright red?
Well, so do we.
What if we told you there is an opportunity to turn your redness into green? Allow me to explain…
Red Nose Day is a campaign designed to not just raise awareness but raise money.
The goal? To keep children safe, educated and healthy across the world!
The catch? You may just have to embarrass yourself a little!
Small price to pay when you think about how it impacts the level of contribution and the results of changing the lives of children around the world.
The Ice Bucket Challenge turned out to be an unexpected viral sensation. People could not wait to post their video and keep ALS awareness trending. It was a huge social media success which led to tremendous amounts of cash flow and donations for research and a potential cure. The biggest celebrity names, the most powerful and elite, all were not afraid to shiver online for the sake of the cause. So we think slapping on a red nose for a day isn’t too much to ask right? Right.
The mission is simple. Awareness. Why? Because the more creativity and fun you have with this campaign, the more you are committed to looking a little foolish, the more green these children will see & receive.
So dance like no one is watching, sing like you do in the shower, and don’t be shy if your nose turns beat red!

Since the first Red Nose Day, Comic Relief has raised over 1 billion dollars to help people in need around the world. If you have an interest or a mission in mind, join us in this movement.
