Hunger doesn't take a holiday. Donate Today.

For millions of families struggling to put food on the table, this time of year is especially difficult. But if we come together, we can help address the immediate needs of children and families facing hunger.

A gift of any size to the Full Plate Project by Red Nose Day not only helps provide nourishing meals to children who urgently need them, but also supports long-term solutions to address food insecurity. Please give what you can.

As long as there are children living in poverty and facing inequity, every day is Red Nose Day

Even when the unpredictable happens, like the crisis of COVID-19, your ongoing support helps give children living in the most vulnerable communities across the U.S. and around the world a chance at a better life and a brighter future.

A monthly gift goes even further, because giving a little each month adds up to big change.

When you give monthly, you’ll also become a member of The Sandbox, Red Nose Day’s community of monthly givers.

Complete your gift to make a difference.

Every Child Counts

We have a lot of fun in order to raise money to end child poverty, but it's no laughing matter. Every child is filled with potential – to do good, be great, and give back to their communities. But for children in poverty, the odds are stacked against them.

A World Of Difference

Studies show that when we invest in children, we’re not only changing the lives of individuals. We’re creating positive change in our communities, in our society and even in the economy at large.

There’s More To Do

The issues of child poverty are complex and can’t be solved by any one group or action, but children are strong and resilient. With some help, they can become empowered, healthy, productive agents of change in their own life. When you fundraise for Red Nose Day, you're changing lives.
