This Thursday, May 26 is Red Nose Day, so don’t be alarmed when you see many of your friends, neighbors and co-workers doning a clown-like red nose! Now in its second year in the United States, Red Nose Day is a campaign dedicated to keeping children and young people safe, healthy and educated. The money raised goes to the Red Nose Day Fund which then distributes it to a number of non-profit beneficiaries including Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Feeding America™ and many others.
One of the most important trickle-down effects of supporting this national campaign is how it will positively affect children and their families in our local community. South Florida’s PR firm Durée & Company is honored to work closely with the local chapters of these two fantastic charities: Feeding South Florida™ and Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade.
Our team is also proud to work with the local affiliate of the media sponsor, NBC. Knowing that many people in our community are personally touched by Feeding South Florida and Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, Durée & Company utilizes its close relationship with NBC6 to highlight the many ways these organizations help educate, support and nurture local families and children in our surrounding neighborhoods.
The day’s events will culminate in a live, prime time TV special on NBC at 9 p.m. ET. Entertainment and laughs will be provided by the world’s biggest stars during this two-hour, comedy-driven telethon that will fill homes with fun and laughter. The goal is to raise funds to benefit 11 charities total, aiming to change children’s lives around the world. Half of the money distributed by Red Nose Day 2016 will be spent right here in the U.S. and the other half will be spent in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia and Africa.
Want to join the fun? Start by visiting your local Walgreens to purchase your very own “Red Nose” and then tune in online and on NBC to donate and watch as others get silly for a good cause.
