Iâ€™m helping to get the word out about Red Nose Day 2009.
Iâ€™ve created my digital red nose photo. Happy to have contributed Â£1 for that (paid via PayPal, making it so easy).
Iâ€™ve changed my Twitter avatar to this photo which Iâ€™ll keep throughout this week.
Iâ€™m following @rednoseday2009 on Twitter to keep abreast of whatâ€™s happening everywhere, online and offline.
And Iâ€™ll be tuned in to BBC TV at times this week and definitely for some of the evening of the actual Red Nose Day: this Friday March 13.
What is Red Nose Day? Wikipedia says:
Red Nose Day is the main way in which Comic Relief raises money. It is held in the spring every second year and is often treated as a semi-holiday, with, for example, schools having non-uniform days. The day culminates in a live telethon event on BBC One starting in the evening and going through into the early hours of the morning, but other money-raising events take place. As the name suggests, the day involves the wearing of plastic/foam red noses which are available, in exchange for a donation, from many shops.
Red Nose Day 2007 raised over Â£40 million. The 2009 event hopes to raise more.
Glad to add my little bit for a worthwhile charity.
