5 years. $200 million raised. Nearly 25 million children positively impacted.

2019 marked a huge milestone for Red Nose Day. After 5 years in America we've made a real impact, and we couldn't have done it without you.

Thanks to the generosity of millions of Americans – as well as the support of our partners like Walgreens, NBC, Mars-Wrigley, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation – we've been able to make strides for nearly 25 million children in need.

So without further ado, let's take a look at some of our favorite moments of 2019...

The Community Comes Together

From our fundraisers all across America, to our dedicated partners and some of our famous friends, millions came together to help end child poverty – one nose at a time.
