Have Some Office Fun for a Good Cause on Red Nose Day, May 26!

Red Nose Day – the #1 television fundraising event in the UK – is back for a second year in America, inviting the American public to come together on May 26 to have fun and make a difference.

Inspired and supported by Comic Relief U.K. — the British charity behind Red Nose Day — NBC will televise the two-hour star-studded broadcast live on Thursday, May 26 (9-11 p.m. ET) featuring stand-up comedy, parodies, sketch comedy, musical performances from popular artists. Red Nose Day encourages viewers and participants to “Have fun, raise money and change lives.”

Comic Relief has selected a group of nonprofits that will benefit from Red Nose Day 2016, including America’s Charities nonprofit member, Feeding AmericaHalf of the money distributed by Red Nose Day 2016 will be spent right here in the U.S. The other half will be spent in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia, and Africa. All money raised supports projects that ensure kids are safe, healthy, and educated.
