"RED NOSE DAY"
05/26/2016 (09:00PM - 11:00PM) (Thursday) : A star-studded cast of Hollywood favorites is coming together to have fun, raise money and change the lives of kids who need our help the most in NBC's "Red Nose Day Special." Broadcast live from Los Angeles, the special will feature hilarious comedy, incredible music performances from popular artists and short compelling films shedding light on those in need here at home and around the world. Red Nose Day has raised over $1 billion globally in the last 25 years, and in the U.K. has become a cultural phenomenon where people across the country come together to have fun, raise money and change lives. Red Nose Day launched in the U.S. in 2015 and raised more than $23 million, with the money now at work in all 50 states and 15 countries internationally through programs to keep children and young people safe, healthy and educated. Created by Oscar nominee and Emmy Award-winning writer-director Richard Curtis, ("Love Actually," "Four Weddings and a Funeral," "Notting Hill"), the idea of Red Nose Day was built upon the foundation that mass media and celebrities can help raise money and awareness of poverty to save and change millions of lives.
