Don’t Miss Out On Joke-Ha-Thon and Do These!


This Red Nose Day, kids are invited to make their laughs matter.

To get started, here are some quick Do’s and Dont’s about running your very own Joke-Ha-Thon:

Do: Unlock exclusive content like Celebrity Joke of the Day and joke inspirational tools by heading over to

Don’t: Participate at all.

Do: Use the Scholastic lesson plan about humor and joke-writing to show your kids how fundraising for Red Nose Day can help make a difference.

Don’t: Make fun of kids when they show you the jokes they write.

Do: Raise money by telling and selling jokes at a joke booth, and donate that money to Red Nose Day to help end child poverty.
