Red Nose Day returns to help kids charity
Cure Kids, in association with Paper Plus Group is bringing back Red Nose Day with the aim of raising $1 million to help fund research into lifethreatening childhood illnesses affecting Kiwi kids.
Cure Kids will sell red noses, badges, wristbands, car noses at Paper Plus and Take Note stores and Shell service stations from November 1 for the big day on November 19.
Cure Kids chief executive officer Vicki Lee says: ‘‘Cure Kids Red Nose Day is a chance for New Zealanders to come together to raise money for a great cause that makes a real difference to the lives of Kiwi families.’’
Red Nose Day was a popular fundraising event throughout the 1990s. It began in 1989 and saw thousands of Kiwis – including police, politicians and All Blacks – don bright red clown noses to raise funds for research into sudden infant death syndrome.
