Red Nose Day is a fundraising event organized by Comic Relief, the independent sister organization of Comic Relief UK, a charitable organization that aims to combat child poverty. On Red Nose Day, everyone is encouraged to cast inhibitions aside, put on a Red Nose, and raise awareness and funds to contribute to the cause. It has been going on in the U.K. for 30 years and has raised more than $1 billion in charitable donations so far.
