Happy Red Nose Day!!! Red Nose Day is a day celebrated to support charities that are dedicated to end childhood poverty and keep children safe, healthy, and educated. Charities include the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Feeding America, Save the Children, The Global Fund, and charity: water.
Comic Relief, an originally British organization was founded in 1985, began the Red Nose Day telethon in 1988. Comic Relief founders comedian Lenny Henry and comedy scriptwriter Richard Curtis took action in response to the famine in Ethiopia. Over 150 celebrities and comedians participated in the first Red Nose Day telethon.
This year’s 2017 Red Nose Day special on NBC highlights the first celebrity edition of “American Ninja Warrior” and Julia Roberts on Running Wild with Bear Grylls.
