We're ending child poverty, one nose at a time.

What’s with the Nose?

Simple yet powerful, visible and playful,
the Red Nose has always been our symbol.
It brings us together, breaks down barriers,
and reminds us of the power of laughter. 

This year Red Noses arrive with a touch of silver sparkle, because giving children a brighter future is something to celebrate.

What happens on Red Nose Day?

Every year, thousands across America buy Red Noses at Walgreens and go Nose to Nose to raise awareness and funds to help children in need. Then, in late May, the nation comes together to wear our Red Noses and tune into NBC for a special night of prime-time programming celebrating Red Nose Day.

Our History

Comic Relief launched in the United Kingdom with the goal of using comedy to raise money and help those leading tough lives. The vision? Creating a just world free from poverty. 

The movement continues to grow with every fundraiser held, TV special aired, partner enlisted, and Red Nose sold. Globally, Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion since its launch in the U.K. in 1988.
