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

Child poverty has long been a crisis, but right now it is nothing short of an emergency. A gift of any size can protect children facing poverty from the ripple effects of COVID-19.

We need your support to help 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.

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.



Today is the day, guys! Red Nose Day is officially here.

Today, millions of you all around the country are coming together to change the lives of children facing poverty. And as the effects of COVID-19 pose an unprecedented threat for the most vulnerable children, we believe this Red Nose Day might be our most important one yet.

So donate, share your digital Red Nose on social media, and tune-in to NBC at 8/7c. The more ways you get involved, the bigger impact we’ll make.

OK. Let’s take a look at what we’ve got going on today:

The Special Night for Red Nose Day is BACK on NBC

The fun kicks off on NBC at 8/7c with a spectacularly over-the-top “Celebrity Escape Room,” featuring Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, and Adam Scott. Watch as they decipher clues, solve puzzles, and brainstorm solutions to escape before time runs out. Each room they complete raises more money, so we’ll be watching in anxious anticipation to see what happens.

Following “Celebrity Escape Room,” tune-in at 9/8c for the sixth-annual “Red Nose Day Special.” The TWO HOUR Special brings together an incredible lineup for a night of music, comedy, and stories of the children that you’re helping by supporting Red Nose Day. It’s going to be… legendary.

The night will feature amazing musical performances from John Legend, Kelly Clarkson, Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, OneRepublic, Ellie Goulding, Steve Martin and more. Seriously. So many more!

And you’ll have to tune-in to find out.

Of course, it wouldn’t be Red Nose Day without some comedy. Expect some laughs from Jim Gaffigan, Tony Hale, Ray Romano, Ricky Gervias, Sarah Silverman, and Lily Singh.

Trust us, you don’t want to miss it.

But wait, there’s more!

The night will be hosted by Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley. THE stars of NBC’s “This Is Us.” We cannot CONTAIN our excitement.

We’re not biased or anything, so trust us: this will literally be the best night of television all year. All you need is your digital Red Nose in hand and your feet up to get into the spirit of Red Nose Day. OK, we’d like it if you opened your wallet for children in need, too.

Remember, we’re watching…
