Red Nose Day

All around the world today there are a vast number of bloggers participating in a Day of Silence for Japan. Here in the UK it is Red Nose Day and, in my opinion, not a day to keep quiet. We have all been devastated by the news reaching us from Japan and I know many of us have wept tears of both grief and relief. Grief for those suffering right now and relief that we are not one of them. What Red Nose Day highlights is that, though Japan is being heavily featured on the news at the moment, there are many more people suffering and desperately needing our help.

For those of you unfamiliar with Red Nose Day:

Red Nose Day is a day like no other when the whole country gets together to do something funny for money and change countless lives in the process.
It all culminates in a night of cracking TV on the BBC with some of the biggest names in comedy and entertainment.
And the best bit? All the fun and mayhem helps to raise cash and transform lives across the UK and Africa.

All the money raised and donated by the public goes directly towards projects that transform people's lives across Africa and at home in the UK.
In Africa, your money helps to restore people's sight, to protect families from deadly malaria, to give an education to children whose lives have been torn apart by war, and so much more.
Across the UK your cash can help to provide comfort for isolated older people and help to give young carers their childhoods back. In fact, wherever you are in the UK, it's likely you're never more than 30 miles from a Comic Relief supported project.

If you can spare just a little bit of money tonight...... whatever you can afford...... you could be helping:

and many more just like them.

Do what you can. Be funny for money!!!!
