For the second year in a row, Saxon|Gilmore participated in “Red Nose Day.” The first official “Red Nose Day” began in 1988 in the United Kingdom. Comic Relief wanted to help the children affected by poverty and raise awareness through comedy.
Red Nose Day began in the United States in 2015. In three years, over 8 million children have been helped with the money raised. The foundation partners with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Children’s Health Fund, Covenant House, Feeding America, Gavi (the Vaccine Alliance), UnidosUS, Save the Children, and The Global Fund.
May 24, 2018 is the official day. Funds raised will cover necessities such as shelter, food, education, vaccines, and safety for the children affected by poverty. Half of the proceeds raised will go to children in all 50 states and Puerto Rico, and the other half will go to the poorest communities in Latin America, Asia, and Africa.
Saxon|Gilmore was happy to participate again this year and enjoyed knowing it was for a worthy cause. Children are our future and a very worthwhile investment.
