Is there a more entertaining way to help end child poverty than wearing a clown nose? We think not! This year Red Nose Day is happening around the globe on Thursday, May 24, 2018. Although around in the UK since 1985, the popular noses appeared in the US through Comic Relief Inc. in 2015. In 3 years, they’ve raised $100 Million dollars to help end child poverty!

Locally, there are 3 events happening over the next 2 days that you can be a part of:
