With every fundraiser held, TV special aired, partner enlisted, and Red Nose sold the movement continues to grow. Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally.
Since 2015, Red Nose Day in America has raised over $60 million to help kids and young people most in need. We'll hope you join us on our journey as we make an even bigger impact.
