Red Nose Day is a campaign to help lift kids out of poverty. People from all walks of life are encouraged to get involved, have fun and raise money by buying red noses sold exclusively at Walgreens stores nationwide, organizing fundraising events and watching and donating during a television special on NBC. Following the sell-out success of last year’s inaugural Red Nose Day, Walgreens is making more Red Noses available and expanded to Red Nose Day Flair merchandise. This ranges from red hats and springy novelty headbands to oversized sequin bowties and Red Noses for cars (to name a few), making it even easier for Americans to “Get Seriously Silly” in support of a great cause. The money raised by Red Nose Day in 2016 will help support projects in some of the neediest communities in the U.S. and some of the poorest communities in the world.
Host Craig Ferguson and a star-studded cast of Hollywood favorites will be coming together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who need our help the most in ‘The Red Nose Day Special’ on NBC. Broadcast live from Los Angeles on Red Nose Day, Thursday, May 26 (8-10 p.m. CT), the special will feature hilarious comedy, incredible music performances from popular artists and short, compelling films shedding light on children in need here at home and around the world.
Coming together for the FUN-raising special will be Ellen DeGeneres, Jack Black, Paul Rudd, Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, Sarah Silverman, Tracy Morgan, Key & Peele, Anna Kendrick, Seth Rogen, Zac Efron and Ellie Kemper, along with Kristen Bell, Emma Watson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Rose Byrne, Blake Griffin, Emma Thompson, Chloë Grace Moretz, Steve Buscemi, Danny Trejo, Adam Devine and Ron Funches.
