What is Red Nose Day?

We’re glad you asked! Red Nose Day is an annual fundraising campaign to end the cycle of child poverty and ensure a healthy future for all children. Through the power of entertainment, we bring people together to laugh and have fun, while raising  money and awareness to ensure all children are safe, healthy, educated, and empowered in the U.S. and abroad. Since the debut in 2015, we have raised over $324 million and have positively impacted over 32 million children in America, and around the world.

This year, Red Nose Day was held Thursday, May 25, 2023.
