Red Nose Day: Making a Difference

Red Nose Day: Making a Difference
BY WINNIE BONELLI
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

“It’s good for us to know the way that other people live, but also on this one night to believe you can make a difference. Rather than making people feel guilty, I hope it’s going to empower them that we can do something together as a family,” stated Executive Producer Richard Curtis and creator Red Nose Fund. The proceeds are earmarked towards lifting children out of poverty-ridden conditions, both in America and throughout the world. These efforts fall into three distinct categories – keeping them safe from violence and abuse; educating them; and making sure they’re healthy.

Having raised more than $1 billion for charity over the past 30 years in the United Kingdom, Curtis transports this British tradition to United States shores for the first time, via NBC-TV today (Thursday) at 8 p.m. with the inaugural edition of “Red Nose Day.”

Actor/comedian Jack Black has been tapped to serve as master of ceremonies. Curtis noted, “He’s a beloved comedian, as well as all his other dramatic skills. I’m hoping people will get a lot of laughs, as well as emotional moments. There’s just so much extraordinary comedy coming out of this country and so many great films. It’s an amazingly generous country.”
