I have said for a long time that I hoped that America could copy the idea of the Red Nose Day from England and today I read that there will be a Red Nose Day in the USA on May 21st of this year! The first Red Nose Day was in 1988 (although the charity COMIC RELIEF was founded 30 years ago, in 1985.) It was started by Richard Curtis and Lenny Henry. Lenny Henry you might know as an actor and very funny comedian. Richard Curtis...you should know his name too if you like British comedies! He is the writing talent behind the movies, "Four Weddings and a Funeral", "Love Actually", "Bridget Jones' Diary", "Notting Hill" and the TV comedies, 'Black Adder", "Mr. Bean" and" The Vicar of Dibley". So funny!
You may read more about Red Nose Day at this link just here. Apparently, they will have more on that link in early April so that you may download a fundraising kit. Remember it!
I love it when the world listens to me even if it takes years! HA! I'm such a comedian!
