Red Nose Day is an annual event that harnesses the power of entertainment to raise money and awareness for children living in poverty in America and around the world. Since launching in 2015, the campaign has raised over $100 million, positively impacting over 8.3 million children. NBC’s Red Nose Day programming is a culmination of a seven-week fundraising campaign that brings together millions of Americans around the country to have fun and make a difference. The campaign’s iconic Red Noses are on sale exclusively at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide. Over 8 million of the Red Noses have already been sold, with all profits from all sales benefitting Red Nose Day.
For the fourth year, Walgreens is the exclusive retailer of the campaign’s iconic Red Noses – available at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations around the country – and a broadcast partner of “The Red Nose Day Special”. Mars Wrigley Confectionery and the M&M’S(R) brand are also teaming up with Red Nose Day for the fourth year, donating $1 million to the cause as national partners of the campaign.
