So what exactly is Red Nose Day?

It's an effort to raise money and change the lives of children living in poverty in the U.S. and around the world. NBC is broadcasting a star-studded event May 26 at 8 p.m.

Money raised in 2015 benefited children in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally, including helping to serve nearly 8 million meals to children at food banks across the U.S., providing more than 50,000 American children access to essential medical services and supplying more than 170,000 life-saving vaccinations for children internationally.

Walgreens is the exclusive retailer of the signature noses in the U.S., for $1 each with 50 cents contributed to the Red Nose Day Fund. No portion of purchase is tax deductible. This year, Walgreens also will be selling additional Red Nose Day “flair” merchandise, including mugs, necklaces, hats,  and red noses for cars to encourage people to “get seriously silly” for #RedNoseDay. Proceeds from Red Nose and Red Flair purchases benefit the Red Nose Day Fund.


Additionally, M&M’S will give consumers “30 Days of Laughs” through its #MakeMLaugh campaign, where the brand will donate $1 for every social engagement with the hashtag through the day of the Red Nose Day broadcast.
