Critical Role Foundation x Red Nose Day
We launched our partnership with the wildly popular storytelling and world-building independent media company, Critical Role in 2019. Since then, we’ve activated and engaged their ever-growing and passionate TTRPG community to make a positive impact, raising over $1.3 million to date! In addition to benefiting from merchandise sales and recurring donations from the Critical Role Foundation’s monthly giving program, we’ve hosted two virtual Dungeons & Dragons adventure-filled fundraising events with our celebrity friend Stephen Colbert. We use donation-based votes to shape the adventure each year, meaning the more a donor contributes, the more the scales are tipped in favor of the donor’s preferred story elements to make it into the final adventure. We’ve even won a Gold Honor Shorty Award for 2022’s fundraising campaign!
Harlem Globetrotters x Red Nose Day
We partnered with the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters, globally recognized for embracing the power of fun and entertainment, to take center court at 25 games across 24 cities in April 2023. Hundreds of Red Noses were given out to audience members at every game, and five lucky audience members at each game were invited to take part in the Red Nose Day Halftime Basketball Skills Showcase. Most importantly, fans attending were invited to make a donation onsite to support the campaign.
1800 Flowers x Red Nose Day
Recognizing that education opens the doors of opportunity, iconic gift-giving marketplace 1-800-Flowers.com. generously donated 10% of proceeds from a special 2023 back-to-school collection to the Red Nose Day campaign. Funds raised across this month-long promotion allow us to support programs working to provide access to quality educational resources and supplies to empower children to dream big and discover pathways to success. Just as the Red Nose Day campaign demonstrates the profound impact that joy, levity, and laughter can have in driving social change, this partnership was a natural fit, as these positive and hopeful attributes are also at the heart of what 1-800-Flowers.com delivers daily to its customers nationwide.
Charlie Mackesy x Red Nose Day
To commemorate Red Nose Day 2021, Charlie Mackesy, the artist, and author behind the best-selling book, “The Boy, the Mole, the Fox, and the Horse,” created a limited-edition t-shirt where 100% of proceeds benefitted our campaign. The illustration featured was all about kindness, a very natural tie-in to Red Nose Day, and the collective spirit of kindness in people coming together to change lives.
