Today Is #RedNoseDay

Hey, hey, hey - it's Red Nose Day!

Launched in 2015, this campaign is all about helping kids and working to end child poverty.

And from now until June 15, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation will match every dollar raised through Facebook up to $1 million. That means your dollars will do double the good.

Here's some official info about the campaign.

Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign run by the non-profit organization Comic Relief Inc., a registered U.S. 501(c)(3) public charity.

Red Nose Day brings people together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who need our help the most.

Red Nose Day launched in the US in 2015, dedicated to ending child poverty, both in the US and in some of the poorest communities in the world. The money raised by Red Nose Day in the US has benefited programs for children and young people in all 50 states and in 25 countries internationally.

Globally, Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion since its launch in the UK in 1988.

The money raised by Red Nose Day benefits children in some of the neediest communities in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world. Partner charities include Boys & Girls Clubs of America; charity: water; Children’s Health Fund; Covenant House; Feeding America; Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance; National Council of La Raza; Save the Children and The Global Fund.

All of Red Nose Day’s grant money supports projects to keep children and young people safe, healthy, educated and empowered.

Here's a link to the official Red Nose website for more info, and click here to donate on Alex Abramov's Facebook page (since I'm sharing his Red Nose Day pic) where your dollars get doubled.
