Red Nose Day Takes a Silly Approach to a Serious Problem

Red Nose Day at Canfield Place

15 million children in the United States live in families below the federal poverty level and 41% of American children live in low-income families. Red Nose Day, which takes place each year in May, strives to raise money and awareness for children in poverty. The day, sponsored by Walgreens and Comic Relief, has created a movement in the U.S. and the U.K., raising over $1 billion since it’s creation in 1988.

Bringing communities together to raise funds, the movement centers around a red nose, a powerful, visible and still playful symbol that reminds participants of the power of laughter. Fundraising events happen year-round and in May, the movement comes together with a special night of programming aired on NBC.

Making a Difference at Canfield Place

This year, Canfield Place participated in Red Nose Day and raised $630.05 for the organization. Every quarter, Canfield Place chooses a charity to support and is involved with the giving back to the community on a variety of levels.

Our residents love to know they are making a difference in the lives of others and we are proud to give them a way to do so, as a community.
