Hasbro is committed to making the world a better place for children and their families. Together, we are inspiring youth to stand up for others and make a difference wherever they can.

That’s why this year, we are partnering with Red Nose Day to offer kids the opportunity to use the power of their own voices to make a difference for children living in poverty, who are especially affected by the COVID-19 crisis.

What is the Joke-Ha-Thon?

Red Nose Day is inviting classrooms and families to make their laughs matter by joining a virtual Joke-Ha-Thon! Between now and  Red Nose Day (May 21), kids across the country will be telling their best jokes to raise life-changing cash for children in need.

Here’s where we come in –– Hasbro is matching all dollars raised for the Joke-Ha-Thon up to $50,000!



How Does Joke-Ha-Thon Work?

  • Red Nose Day has created virtual Joke-Ha-Thon experiences for both classrooms AND families.

  • Kids will pick their favorite jokes – or write their own! 

  • Parents will then post videos of their children telling their jokes on social media – or post an image if they prefer.

  • The post will include a link to a classroom fundraising page (created and provided by a teacher) or a direct donation link if you're participating as a family.

  • Red Nose Day ensures the money raised goes where the need is greatest and to fund programs that help our most vulnerable children giving food, medicine, shelter. And most importantly, to give hope.
