Each spring, students across the country join together in their classrooms, schools, and communities to spread much-needed joy and raise life-changing cash to support children living in poverty.
Millions of children live in poverty in the U.S. and around the world, lacking the basic resources needed to survive and thrive.
Your students can help by using the power of their voices— and the skills they work hard to develop in school—to fundraise for Red Nose Day!
Your students will make a lasting impact for children living in poverty while building empathy and realizing their power to help, even though they’re young.
Planning a fundraising event is also a great way for students to practice goal-setting and build their organizational skills while also learning empathy for others.
Fundraising for Red Nose Day will also bring laughter into the classroom, build community and core ELA and SEL skills, promote cooperative learning, and even offer a fun break during testing weeks in the spring.
The money your students raise will support programs that keep children safe, healthy, educated, and empowered, in the U.S. and around the world. It helps address the immediate needs of vulnerable children while fostering long-term change.
Every penny counts, and even a small amount can make a big difference for children in need of support.
There are so many creative ways to fundraise for Red Nose Day! Take a look at this idea guide, this lesson plan teaching students to write their own jokes and this list of 150 kid-approved jokes for inspiration!
