Red Nose Day was amazing!
We raised over $31.5 million dollars for kids in need across America and around the world.
Millions of you bought Red Noses at Walgreens. Countless FUN-raisers happened across the country. And The Red Nose Day Special on NBC brought us together with the biggest stars to share a laugh and so many moving stories about children leading incredibly difficult lives.
Iconic buildings glowed red throughout the week, including the Empire State Building in NYC, the Willis Tower in Chicago, and the U.S. Bank Tower in Los Angeles. Supporters of the cause biked 10,000 miles on The Today Show. And Red Nose Day got an overwhelming amount of love across Facebook,Twitter, Snapchat, Google and more!
Together on Red Nose Day we made a huge impact for kids who need us most.
