The event will consist of a three-hour-long television program that will be aired by NBC and will feature some of the most famous names in American television and entertainment. The T.V. event will be aired in hopes that, while being entertained by film stars, comedians, and musicians, viewers will be encouraged to donate to the campaign, which allocates funds raised towards charities such as Feeding America, United Way, Charity: Water, Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and several more. However, while the day is centered around the T.V. event, the campaign is already underway, and organizations and individuals across the nation are getting creative in their fundraising efforts.
One of the best things about Red Nose Day is its simplicity. The red nose functions as a symbol of fun, laughter, and entertainment, which are used to bring people together to help fight poverty. By simply buying a red nose and wearing it for a day, you’re contributing to the campaign in a meaningful way by means of both financial support and raising awareness for the campaign and its goals. There is an infinite number of ways business and individuals alike can help raise awareness and funds, but in case you’re stumped, the official website has a page to help get the idea ball rolling at Red Nose Day. At AK Material Handling Systems, we plan on rocking our red noses all day long (as long as our noses don’t get sore) and getting in the spirit of fun and goodwill — who’s joining us?
