Have you heard about Red Nose Day?
In the United States, Red Nose Day is Thursday May 26, 2016.
Since 1985, comedians and celebrities in the United Kingdom have come together to put on a hilarious evening for a good cause, and they called the fundraiser “Comic Relief”. It started out as a one-day telethon all those years ago, but with the rise of technology, it now is a world-wide event which you can contribute to any day of the year. And now they call it “Red Nose Day”.
In the last 25 years, they have raised over $1 Billion. The goal of Red Nose Day is to end childhood hunger and world-wide poverty for the next generation.
It is a worthy goal, and I applaud them.
Here at Mooseburger’s, we were super excited to get involved last year and help raise money.
We thought RED NOSE = CLOWN. Right? It’s a no-brainer!
Well, Red Nose Day 2015 came and went, with absolutely no mention of clowns in any of the promotional stuff, nor in the actual televised event.
We were rather bummed.
Clowns originated the red nose — the least they could do is acknowledge that…
“NOT about clowns”
So this week, I look at the website for 2016 Red Nose Day, and I see this:
You read that correctly. It says “It’s NOT about clowns”
Seriously?!? C’mon! Not cool, folks. NOT COOL.
That wonderful red nose has been a universal symbol for “CLOWN” long before it was a symbol for anything else!
What do we have to do to get a little respect?
Let’s TAKE BACK the red nose
Proudly wear your red nose on May 26. And give some away with pride!
