Inspired by Red Nose Day?

Every year, Comic Relief raises vital funds for children in serious need through their fundraising extravaganza Red Nose Day – and we can't wait to get our noses on!

Since its launch in 1988, Red Nose Day has raised millions of pounds for people in desperate both abroad and here in the UK – and children are some of its key beneficiaries. If you've missed out on Red Nose Day this year and feel passionately about the cause, you'll be pleased to know that Comic Relief accepts donations all year round.

If you'd like to help in a more personal way, then perhaps child sponsorship is the best choice for you. We work in 125 countries worldwide, where more than 6,000 SOS mothers provide a loving family home for children in dire need.
