KTVZ joins NBC in celebrating ‘Red Nose Day’


You’ll be seeing a lot of red noses on the faces of NewsChannel 21 on Thursday, but nobody’s caught the sniffles. Instead, they’ve caught the spirit of giving and caring for those in need, in a very fun way.

KTVZ is partnering with NBC for the fifth annual Red Nose Day in America. In each news program, our on-air people will be donning their red noses and talking about what it’s all about.

And what it’s all about is coming together to both have fun and make a difference, raising money and awareness to help children who need us most, here in America and around the world. Red Nose Day’s mission is to end child poverty, one nose at a time.

This year’s campaign culminates in a night of special prime time programs, including the fifth annual “Red Nose Day Special” and a special edition of “Hollywood Game Night.”

The campaign’s iconic Red Noses are available exclusively at Walgreens and Duane Reade locations nationwide.

In the past four years, Red Nose Day has raised almost $150 million, impacting the lives of more than 16 million children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and some of the poorest communities around the world.

Since launching in America in 2015, Red Nose Day has received generous support from millions of Americans, hundreds of celebrities and many partners, including Walgreens (the official retailer of the Red Noses), NBC, Mars, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Money raised supports programs that ensure children who are living in poverty are safe, healthy and educated.

Half of the grant money supports programs in the United States and the other half helps in some of the poorest communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

Red Nose Day grantee partners include organizations such as the Children’s Health Fund; Covenant House; Feeding America; the Boys & Girls Clubs of America; and Laureus Sport for Good.

Created by award-winning writer-director Richard Curtis (“Love Actually,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill”). Red Nose Day started in the U.K. in 1988 and has raised over $1 billion globally.
