Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., a registered 501(c)(3) American charity. Funds raised by Red Nose Day 2017 in America go to the Red Nose Day Fund, which benefits children in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally through charities that keep them safe, healthy and educated. Comic Relief Inc. in the US and Comic Relief UK are independent sister organizations that are joined by their shared vision of a just world, free from poverty and the mission to drive positive change.
Although today is the official day of Red Nose Day, Unity Hospice has been celebrating all month long! And we hope you have joined us along the way to support these rewarding efforts.
Red Nose Day is important to us for a couple of reasons: We are proud to support an organization that helps children receive basic needs that we take for granted every day such as food, healthcare and education. We are also excited about Red Nose Day because it helps us to connect with our community in a fun manner.
All month long, Unity Hospice staff will be out in the field handing out red noses that we purchased as a company (to raise awareness of the cause) and taking pictures with those we come in contact with – business partners, friends, family, community members. We then invite you to visit our website’s contest page to vote on your favorite red nose picture (URL coming soon).
It is our hope that through these efforts, we make at the very least a small difference for less fortuante children around the world.
