Childhood should be carefree and joyful. That’s why we're giving EVERYONE the chance to bring a childhood fantasy to life.

Ever dreamed of crushing a car in a monster truck? How about having your very own cotton candy castle? Would you like to be best friends with a penguin? Now is your chance!


Red Nose Day has helped millions of kids across the country break the cycle of poverty by providing access to health care, nutritious food, quality education, and housing—helping them make their dreams realities. 

And this year, we're giving EVERYONE the chance to have a childhood dream come true, too. 

That’s right — every $5 donation to Red Nose Day is a chance to win a whimsical, imaginative experience inspired by childhood dreams.
