Red Nose Day!

I will never forget my first experience with Red Nose Day - I was living in North Wales and working at Bodelwyddan Castle when I happened to pass by the hotel reception where I found a fellow co-worker bathing in a tub of baked beans!  I was super confused and then immediately informed about the UK based charity Comic Relief whose mission is to create a just world free from poverty.  Red Nose Day is one of the fundraisers Comic Relief holds every two years where thousands of people do something funny for money (hence the bean bath!). A good friend from the UK recently sent me this lovely Vivienne Westwood designed t-shirt that was specially designed for Comic Relief (five pounds from each t-shirt sale went to the charity!).  Here's a spoof on the MamaMia movie that some celebrities did to raise money for Red Nose Day in 2009 - hilarious!

  1. What a funny idea! I love when fundraisers have a good twist. This is actually the first I've heard of Red Nose Day or Comic Relief. I'll have to take a look and see if they have any events going on stateside.
