NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Titans put on red noses for a few laughs this week to support awareness of "Red Nose Day" that has become a nationwide sensation here is the U.S.
The inaugural Red Nose Day is being held on Thursday, May 21 as a campaign dedicated to raising money to help bring children out of poverty by simply having fun and making people laugh. One in every five children in the U.S. lives in poverty.
Titans fans are encouraged to take part, too, sharing their Red Nose photos on social media using the hashtag #RedNoseTitans.
"It's a great cause," said Kenneth S. Adams, IV, Titans Director of Public and Charitable Affairs. "It's important to the Titans organization to raise awareness and do whatever we can for people who need help."
Red Nose Day is a fundraising campaign thrown by the non-profit organization Comic Relief. Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has been a national tradition in Britain for nearly 30 years and is an inspiring cultural phenomenon that unites people from all walks of life in the interest of saving and changing lives across the globe.
Money raised during the Red Nose Day campaign goes to the Red Nose Day Fund, which then distributes grants to charities that benefit children and young people in the US and some of the poorest communities in the world.
The full day of events will culminate with a three-hour television special on NBC that will feature some of the top comedians, musicians and Hollywood stars. The special will raise funds for 12 different organizations that work to help children out of poverty, both in America and globally.
Have fun laughing for a great cause during a day of giving that unites people across the country to raise money for those in need.
Take a photo of yourself or a friend, add a Red Nose, and share it with the world for an awesome cause!
