Today we have a guest post from our favorite whimsical duo over a A Whimsy Wonderland and they’re sharing everything you need to know about Red Nose Day, which is right around the corner on May 25th.
Hi, ladies & gents!
We’re sure a lot of you have heard about Red Nose Day, but we’ll share a few little tidbits for those who haven’t! The Comic Relief program launched in the UK in 1985, with the goal of using comedy to raise money to help those in need. The very first Red Nose Day was held a few years later, and has since become a global movement that has raised over $1 billion to help put an end to child poverty! How amazing is that?! (To read more on the story of RND and/or make a donation, click here!)
Growing up, both of our families taught us the importance of giving back to charities such as this, no matter how much or how little money we had. In California alone, 21.2% of children live in poverty. They don’t get 3 meals a day, they don’t all have the privilege of attending school, and they may not even have clean water. It’s easy to get caught up in your head about the little things in life, but the bigger picture is that, no matter what, even if it’s just $1 to buy a Red Nose. It. Helps.
Walgreens has made it easy and fun to get involved with this charity. All you have to do is drive to your local Walgreens, and pick up a Red Nose (or two!) next to the register. Each nose is only a dollar, and for every nose sold between April 17th and June 3rd, Walgreens will donate 50 cents to the Comic Relief Inc.’s Red Nose Day Fund! Literally so easy! This helps lift children in the U.S. and internationally out of poverty! AND you can take a cute selfie with your nose on. 🙂
For more information about the Red Nose Day Fund, visit www.walgreens.com/rednoseday. No portion of purchase is tax deductible.
We invite y’all to put your “Noses On” with us, and post on social media with weekly #RedNose challenges. Starting April 17th, you can share photos wearing red noses, using #RedNose, #Walgreens on Twitter or Instagram.
We love that getting involved doesn’t have to be a difficult process. Whether you can give only a dollar, or more, your generosity does not go unseen. This event is making a difference. You are making a difference.
Join us on May 25th by sharing your cute Red Nose Day photos using #RedNose & #Walgreens! We’ll keep our eyes peeled for ya! 😉
Do it for the love,
Jen & Cort
